Just contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Ickenham who completed the legal work two years ago requesting a conveyancing costs illustration based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Should I hunt for an alternative conveyancer?
The charges are a tad high. If you are content to invest time scrutinising quotes you could get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say £125. On the other hand, if you were satisfied with the assistance the firm gave you couldlive to regret choosing an an untested conveyancer. Remember to check the conveyancer can also act for Norwich and Peterborough Building Society.

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Ickenham I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Ickenham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
