What will a local search tell me concerning the property I am buying in Slough?

Slough conveyancing often commences with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search company for example PSG The local search is essential in every Slough conveyancing purchase; that is if you wish to avoid any unpleasant surprises after you move into your new home.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Slough. Before diving in I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Slough - 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 1 bedroom flat in Slough, conveyancing having been completed 3 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Comparable properties in Slough with a long lease are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2072

With 50 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £31,400 and £36,200 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 renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
