    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed flat in Ashford Kent. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have just received a quarterly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

It best that you pay the maintenance contribution as normal given that all ground rent and maintenance charges should be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies 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.

I acquired a 2 bed flat in Ashford Kent, conveyancing was carried out in 1998. How much will my lease extension cost? Similar flats in Ashford Kent with a long lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease ceases on 21st October 2086

With only 65 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £13,300 and £15,400 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings.
