Normally this is asked for to cover the fees of the conveyancing searches. If any deposit is payable against the total price then this should be asked for shortly in advance of exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is needed will be payable shortly before completion.

I inherited a garden flat in Malpas, conveyancing formalities finalised 8 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Malpas with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease ceases on 21st October 2082
You have 63 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £16,200 and £18,600 plus costs.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of 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. You should not take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
The conveyancers conducting our conveyancing in Malpas has forwarded documents to review that reveal that the property is unregistered with epitome documents. How can it be that the property not registred at the Land Registry?
The majority of property in Malpas is registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Many Malpas conveyancing solicitors will be familiar with this type of conveyancing but where uncertainty reigns the prevailing recommendation presently seems to be for the seller’s conveyancer to undertake the registration formalities first and subsequently sell - this can though naturally cause a significant delay.
