I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and must be out of my rented property in Mexborough by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase has just started. How realistic is it to complete in three weeks as don't want to have to find short term accommodation?
It is unwise to serve notice for your letting until your lawyer suggests that you should. If you have not already done so, contact to your solicitor and request that they cajole the other lawyers, try to an agreed time frame that all parties will work to achieve
It is a dozen years since I acquired my home in Mexborough. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been instructed on the sale but I can't locate my title documents. Is this a problem?
You need not be too concerned. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be with your lender or they could still be with the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in most cases the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Mexborough involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
The deeds to our home are lost. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Mexborough 4 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?
Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be evidenced by HMLR under a Title Number. It is easy to perform a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and get up to date copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for twenty pounds.

I inherited a split level flat in Mexborough, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding flats in Mexborough with over 90 years remaining are worth £227,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2090
With 72 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as 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 renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
