What advice can you give us when it comes to finding a Peterlee conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Peterlee conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We suggest that you speak with two or three firms including non Peterlee conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be useful:

    How familiar is the practice with lease extension legislation? How many lease extensions has the firm conducted in Peterlee in the last 12 months?

I inherited a studio flat in Peterlee, conveyancing was carried out in 2005. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Peterlee with over 90 years remaining are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2101

With just 80 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously 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.
