The managing agents has quoted £384 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and previous years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Tilehurst?

Tilehurst conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes more often than not requires the buyer’s conveyancer submitting questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer such questions most will be willing to do so. They may invoice a reasonable charge for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it exceeds £800. The administration charge invoiced by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of rights and obligations in relation to administration charges, without which the charge is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have no option but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to complete the sale of your home.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations.

You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

My mortgage broker has recommended their lawyer for the conveyancing in Tilehurst - Surely it’s easier to just instruct them?

This is not necessarily the case and you are entitled to instruct whichever solicitor of your choosing for your Tilehurst conveyancing. A conveyancer suggested by an estate agent may not always be the right solicitor, they may suggest their preferred conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your property lawyer and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
