Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Exmoor costs more?
The conveyancing costs on a leasehold property in Exmoor is frequently more expensive as compared to a freehold acquisition or disposal. This is because there is an amount of supplemental investigations required in communicating with the freeholder and managing agents to collate the information about whether the rent and service fee have been paid and whether there are any major works due in the near future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the UBS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently currently.
