I opted for a high street firm for my conveyancing in Linslade yesterday. After carefully reading the Ts and Cs I seeI am on the hook for fees even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or instruct a web based firm advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Linslade?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will generally be uplifted to cover the cases that abort. Dont forget that such offerings tend not to cover disbursements by way of example Linslade conveyancing search fees.

I know that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Do I require this when acquiring a property in Linslade? or Apparently there is a law dating back centuries that means some homeowners living in a parish church boundary will be compelled to contribute towards maintenance to the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this relevant for conveyancing in Linslade?
Unless a prior purchase of the property completed post 12 October 2013 you can expect lawyers conducting conveyancing in Linslade to continue to propose a a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Linslade. Conveyancing and Virgin Money mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Linslade who acted for me is not around. Any advice?
First contact the Land Registry to be sure that this person is in fact the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a Linslade conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
I purchased a 1 bedroom flat in Linslade, conveyancing was carried out 7 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Linslade with a long lease are worth £185,000. The ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2078
With just 60 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £20,000 and £23,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
