I have recentlybeen informed that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Lydiate for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest way to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Lydiate conveyancing specialists.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Lydiate I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Lydiate for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent advised that the owners will only move forward if we appoint their recommended lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Lydiate

It is highly unlikely the vendors are behind this. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred Lydiate conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by HQ.

What are your top tips when it comes to choosing a Lydiate conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Lydiate conveyancing practice) it is essential that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We advise that you talk with several firms including non Lydiate conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be of use:

    What are the costs for lease extension work? What volume of lease extensions have they carried out in Lydiate in the last 12 months?

I bought a basement flat in Lydiate, conveyancing formalities finalised June 2004. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Lydiate with a long lease are worth £206,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2085

With just 66 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £12,400 and £14,200 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
