As is the case with many professional services, often recommendations from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. Nevertheless there are numerous players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may put forward conveyancers to retain. Sometimes these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to choose your preferred lawyer. You need to be aware that the majority of banks specify a panel list of solicitors you must use for the mortgage aspect of your home move.

I work for a reputable estate agency in East Riding Villages where we have experienced a number of flat sales derailed as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received conflicting advice from local East Riding Villages conveyancing firms. Please can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
I acquired a basement flat in East Riding Villages, conveyancing having been completed in 2003. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable flats in East Riding Villages with an extended lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2085
With only 65 years unexpired the likely cost is going to span between £13,300 and £15,400 as well as costs.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
