My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Newport Pagnell

It is unlikely the vendors are driving this. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Newport Pagnell conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide the estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by senior management.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Newport Pagnell. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Newport Pagnell - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I am the registered owner of a studio flat in Newport Pagnell, conveyancing was carried out April 1995. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Newport Pagnell with a long lease are worth £171,000. The ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease expires on 21st October 2099

With just 79 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
