I own a leasehold house in Topsham. Conveyancing and The Mortgage Works mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing solicitor in Topsham who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to be sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. There is no need to incur the fees of a Topsham conveyancing solicitor to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I acquired a studio flat in Topsham, conveyancing having been completed April 2011. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable properties in Topsham with over 90 years remaining are worth £202,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £60 levied per year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2075

With 57 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £28,500 and £33,000 plus costs.

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 in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.

I am considering using a web based conveyancing practitioner rather than a Topsham conveyancing practice. Am I making a mistake?

There are advantages of being able to pop in to a local Topsham conveyancing solicitor for instance

  • signing papers on short notice
  • getting face-to-face explanations of matters you don't understand
  • the ability to complain if things go pear-shaped

When comparing quotes, look out for hidden extras. Most decent Topsham high street solicitors give an all-inclusive figure. Often online agents appear to offer cheap fees, yet have burried 'extras' in the small print.
