Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Great Barr

Just contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Great Barr who conducted the legals two years ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of home move (a leasehold premises and a freehold premises) of similar values with a mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Stick with what I know or should I seek out a cheaper internet firm of conveyancing solicitor?

I have recently realised that I have Sixty One years remaining on my lease in Great Barr. I now wish to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. What options are available to me?

On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. However, you will be required to prove that you have done all that could be expected to find the landlord. In some cases an enquiry agent may be helpful to conduct investigations and to produce a report to be accepted by the court as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer in relation to investigating the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Great Barr.

I am the registered owner of a basement flat in Great Barr, conveyancing formalities finalised 7 years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable flats in Great Barr with an extended lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2088

With just 65 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £13,300 and £15,400 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 cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
