I am purchasing a semi-detached house in Hamworthy. Conveyancing solicitors are said to be ‘a necessary evil’ but can I do it myself?

Various online forums that I have come across warn that are the primary cause of obstruction in Hamworthy house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Hamworthy.

I opted to have a survey done on a house in Hamworthy prior to appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not issue a loan on a flying freehold house.

In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Hamworthy and how can you help?

The 1954 Act gives security of tenure to business leaseholders, giving them the dueness to apply to court for a new tenancy and remain in occupation at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing practices who use the act to your advantage and handle your commercial conveyancing in Hamworthy

Completion is due on our sale of a £150,000 garden flat in Hamworthy next week. The managing agents has quoted £372 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and 3 years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Hamworthy?

Hamworthy conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes nine out of ten times involves administration charges invoiced by landlords agents :

    Addressing pre-contract enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Hamworthy Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Hamworthy leasehold premises is £350. For Hamworthy conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to supply the information.

I am the registered owner of a leasehold flat in Hamworthy, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in Hamworthy with over 90 years remaining are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2077

You have 53 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £27,600 and £31,800 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
