Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Holmfirth. Before I get started I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Holmfirth - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I invested in buying a 1 bedroom flat in Holmfirth, conveyancing was carried out April 1995. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable properties in Holmfirth with an extended lease are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2074

With only 56 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £29,500 and £34,000 plus costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.

Our conveyancer in Holmfirth has requested from me proof of ID documents asserting that this forms part of his retainer as a conveyancer on the bank Solicitor panel. Can you confirm whether this is the case?

Due to Money Laundering Regulations your conveyancing lawyer is duty bound to confirm positively your identification when entering into a business relationship with you. It is a criminal offence if your lawyer not do this. If you do not provide ID early in the transaction the solicitor must refuse to act for you. It’s unlikely a lawyer will turn you away if you come to the first meeting without relevant ID but you will have to produce it at some point so you might as well bring it with you to the initial meeting so the lawyer can tick the ID verification box and start sorting out the conveyancing straight away. If you are getting a mortgage, your lawyer also has to check ID documents to satisfy the lender. This is not specific to conveyancing in Holmfirth
