We had chosen solicitors based in Henbury on the TSB solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further charge for handling the TSB mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by TSB?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by TSB but by your Henbury property lawyer. Numerous firms on the TSB panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of practices include it on their overall fee.

I have paid off my mortgage with Coventry BS. I assume I don't need a Henbury solicitor on the Coventry BS panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Coventry BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Coventry BS mortgage from the register. Coventry BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property

  3. Coventry BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Coventry BS mortgage has been paid off.

If other friends have instructed your friend and they were impressed that should surpass using an unfamiliar Henbury conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.

I invested in buying a split level flat in Henbury, conveyancing was carried out April 2009. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Similar flats in Henbury with a long lease are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2102

With only 80 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 plus professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information 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. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
