Will commercial conveyancing searches reveal planned roadworks that may impact a commercial premises in Merseyside?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Merseyside will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers spend in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Merseyside. The search result sets out definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Merseyside.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Merseyside it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately may cause delays to Merseyside commercial conveyancing deals as well as present a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not conducted for domestic conveyancing in Merseyside.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £450,000 maisonette in Merseyside next Monday. The management company has quoted £384 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and previous years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Merseyside?

Merseyside conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes ordinarily involves fees being raised by landlords agents :

    Addressing conveyancing due diligence enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Merseyside Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Merseyside leasehold property is £350. For Merseyside conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to provide the information.

I invested in buying a split level flat in Merseyside, conveyancing having been completed June 2008. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent properties in Merseyside with over 90 years remaining are worth £191,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 levied per year. The lease expires on 21st October 2076

With just 53 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £27,600 and £31,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
