I am buying my first flat in Rusholm with a mortgage from Barclays . The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Rusholm is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Rusholm are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Rusholm you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Rusholm may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Is it legal for a freeholder to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Rusholm?

For the majority of leasehold sales in Rusholm conveyancing will involve, questions about the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Answering pre-exchange questions Where consent is required before sale in Rusholm Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Rusholm leasehold premises is £350. For Rusholm 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. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to supply answers.

I inherited a 2 bed flat in Rusholm, conveyancing formalities finalised 7 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Rusholm with over 90 years remaining are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease expires on 21st October 2076

With only 54 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £32,300 and £37,400 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
