Middleton conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes often necessitates the buyer’s lawyer submitting enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to respond to such questions the majority will be willing to assist. They are entitled to invoice a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it exceeds £800. The administration charge required by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of rights and obligations in relation to administration fees, otherwise the charge is technically not due. In reality one has no choice but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to complete the sale of your home.

Me and my husband have just had an offer accepted on a house and had an appointment on Monday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They warned me that when it comes to selecting a property lawyer that unless they are on their approved panel of lawyers then we will have to pay out an additional fee of £200. This is is due to the fact that they would then have to select a solicitor to act for them in addition to the one we choose to act on our behalf and we assume responsibility for their invoice. I have asked Leeds Building Society to provide me with a list so I can request quotes only from their approved solicitors but was told that I need to check with each individual conveyancer to see if they are on the panel. Is there a list online?
