My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the selling agent has warned us that the seller will only proceed if we appoint the agent's preferred lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Shelfield

It is unlikely the owners are behind this. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Contact the vendors directly and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Shelfield conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures set by senior management.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Shelfield. Before I get started I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and most are in Shelfield - 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.

I am the registered owner of a basement flat in Shelfield, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Shelfield with a long lease are worth £190,000. The ground rent is £65 charged once a year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2085

With 61 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £19,000 and £22,000 plus 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 are not able to advice on the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
