I am due to move home in January. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Shinfield. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from the estate agent but this should only happen when the vendors lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. After that you should inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Shinfield or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Shinfield.

We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer handling your conveyancing.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Shinfield I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Shinfield suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I want to sublet my leasehold flat in Shinfield. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Do I need to ask my freeholder for their consent?

Some leases for properties in Shinfield do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I acquired a 1 bedroom flat in Shinfield, conveyancing was carried out February 2002. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable properties in Shinfield with an extended lease are worth £222,000. The ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2093

With only 71 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
