Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Andover I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Andover for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the invoice as usual as all ground rent and service payments will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Andover - Examples of Queries Prior to buying

    Is there a share of the freehold? You should be aware that where the lease has less than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the marketability of the property. Check with your lender that they are happy with the length of the lease. A short lease means that you will most likely have to extend the lease sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this will be. Remember, in most cases you will be required to have been the owner of the premises for 24 months in order to be eligible to carry out a lease extension. Best to be warned if changing the roof or some other significant cost is pending to be shared by the leasehold owners and will dramatically increase the the service costs or require a one off payment.
