At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Murton and am I required to be at the lawyers office?

I am the registered owner of a split level flat in Murton, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Murton with a long lease are worth £181,000. The ground rent is £55 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2073

You have 51 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £30,400 and £35,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
