The executing of the property agreement is not the critical part. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to address the formalities at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Forest Hall)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I acquired a leasehold flat in Forest Hall, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Forest Hall with over 90 years remaining are worth £197,000. The ground rent is £55 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2073

With 54 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £32,300 and £37,400 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.

I have just started marketing my garden apartment in Forest Hall.Conveyancing has not commenced but I have just had a half-yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?

It best that you clear the service charge as you normally would because all rents and maintenance invoices should be allottedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process
