Taking into account that I am about to part with over three hundred thousand on a house in Rye I wish to talk to a conveyancer about myhouse move prior to appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

We could not agree more - we would be pleased to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor who will be conducting your conveyancing in Rye.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a file number.

We suspect that the seller is not behind this demand. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Rye conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will provide the estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.

I invested in buying a garden flat in Rye, conveyancing formalities finalised February 2010. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Rye with over 90 years remaining are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease expires on 21st October 2084

With only 64 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £15,200 and £17,600 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be 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 based on this information without first getting professional advice.
