We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our conveyancer has advised that he must be satisfied that the mortgage company is willing to move forward with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?

The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the risk of a conflict of interest, you and the bank are the client. Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions.

Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your solicitor will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

Back In 2002, I bought a leasehold house in Hull West. Conveyancing and The Royal Bank of Scotland mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing practitioner in Hull West who previously acted has now retired. Do I pay?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Hull West conveyancing practitioner to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I inherited a 1st floor flat in Hull West, conveyancing formalities finalised October 1996. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Hull West with over 90 years remaining are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2102

With only 80 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

I was advised by my lender that their panel lawyers work on no completion no charge basis for conveyancing in Hull West. My purchase fell through yet the solicitors have requested search fees! They are claiming that the fees are independent!

in promising "no completion no fee" Hull West conveyancing practices are foregoing their fees for any work done. We should make it clear that this does not constitute an insurance scheme. you will still be expected to cover any disbursements that the conveyancer has expended for you such as Hull West local authority searches
