Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Monmouthshire leasehold property is £350. For Monmouthshire 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.

I am the registered owner of a ground floor flat in Monmouthshire, conveyancing was carried out in 2001. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease?
