There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Quinton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of submission are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected once the buyer is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not always primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in Quinton I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Quinton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Quinton. Before I get started I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Quinton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details 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.

With just 67 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £10,500 and £12,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
