In the event thatI were to acquire a freehold propertyin Swanland for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Swanland?

The sole reduction in fees you would make on is the disbursement for searches. A conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the sellers property lawyer, SDLT return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a mortgage but it won't be a lot.

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a garden flat in Swanland. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Swanland?

On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Swanland. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be able to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

is it true that all Swanland solicitor practices on the Nationwide conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. Many lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the firms would be governed by the CLC.

I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Swanland. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancer. I paid an advanced payment of £225. A couple of days later, the conveyancer called me to say that they were not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Co-operative panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Swanland in advance of appointing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend not give a loan on such a home.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Swanland.

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only Fifty years left on my lease in Swanland. I need to get lease extension but my landlord is missing. What are my options?

On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. You will be obliged to prove that you have done all that could be expected to locate the lessor. In some cases a specialist may be useful to conduct investigations and to produce an expert document to be used as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor both on investigating the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Swanland.

I inherited a garden flat in Swanland, conveyancing having been completed in 2005. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding flats in Swanland with a long lease are worth £197,000. The ground rent is £55 per annum. The lease terminates on 21st October 2079

With only 55 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £31,400 and £36,200 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
