Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in St Ives is more expensive?
The conveyancing costs for a leasehold premises in St Ives is frequently greater when contrasted to a freehold residence. This is due to the additional investigations required in communicating with the landlord and management company to obtain information about whether the rent and maintenance fee have been cleared and whether there are any major works due in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

I am planning to move home in June. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in St Ives. Conveyancing lawyer was found prior to coming across this page.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from your property agent but this should only take place when the vendors solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. After that you will need to inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in St Ives or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in St Ives.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Santander. I assume I don't need a St Ives lawyer on the Santander panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Santander mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Santander mortgage from the register. Santander, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Santander has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Santander has instructed the Land Registry to do so

The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
