Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Holbeach?

Holbeach conveyancing on leasehold flats usually involves the buyer’s conveyancer sending questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to such questions the majority will be content to assist. They may charge a reasonable administration fee for responding to enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some situations it is in excess of £800. The administration charge required by the landlord must be sent together with a synopsis of rights and obligations in relation to administration charges, otherwise the invoice is technically not due. In reality one has no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to sell the property.
