We previously chose conveyancers locally in Goole on the Santander solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a further charge for handling the Santander mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Santander?

Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitor is entitled to levy a fee for this. This fee is not set by Santander but by your Goole lawyer. Some firms on the Santander panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Goole. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

It is not clear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Goole building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Goole conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

The conveyancing practitioner has to follow the CML Handbook section two specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Is it best to choose a Goole conveyancing lawyer based in the location that I am buying? I have an old university friend who can handle the legal formalities but his firm is located over three hundred kilometers drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Goole conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to sign documents, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and the majority were happy that must trump using an unknown Goole conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.

I own a leasehold flat in Goole. Conveyancing and The Mortgage Works mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1994. The conveyancing practitioner in Goole who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to make sure that this person is indeed the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a Goole conveyancing solicitor to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I own a 2 bed flat in Goole, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2003. How much will my lease extension cost? Similar flats in Goole with a long lease are worth £221,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease terminates on 21st October 2092

You have 70 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you 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.
