Will our lawyer be raising enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Winslow.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors dealing with homes in Winslow.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Winslow is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Winslow are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Winslow you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Winslow may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

I was advised by numerous estate agents in Winslow to get a quote from a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t offer any financial incentive for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Winslow. Before diving in I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Winslow - 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 bought a garden flat in Winslow, conveyancing was carried out March 1995. How much will my lease extension cost? Similar flats in Winslow with a long lease are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2101

With only 79 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as 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 cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
