My previous lawyer has quoted £1150 for fixed fee conveyancing in Eltham. I am selling a Edwardian detached home for £300,000. This seems overpriced. Is it in excess of what I should be paying for conveyancing in Eltham?

How does conveyancing in Eltham differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Eltham approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Eltham tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Eltham or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Eltham I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Eltham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
