I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance for my purchase of a house in Aylestone. My lender is Tesco Bank

I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of stalling in Aylestone conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Aylestone.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Aylestone I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Aylestone suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
I wish to sublet my leasehold flat in Aylestone. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?
Even though your last Aylestone conveyancing solicitor is not around you can review your lease to see if you are permitted to let out the apartment. The rule is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you need to seek consent from your landlord or some other party prior to subletting. The net result is you not allowed to sublet in the absence of prior permission. The consent must not not be unreasonably withheld. If the lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord for their consent.
I am the registered owner of a studio flat in Aylestone, conveyancing was carried out 4 years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Aylestone with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2085
With only 63 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £16,200 and £18,600 plus 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 a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you 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.
We are midway through buying a property in Aylestone. Conveyancing lawyer has phoned to say the property is "Leasehold". Does this adversely affect the marketability of the property?
Aylestone conveyancing does not ordinarily involve leasehold houses. The key factor here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a peppercorn rent, it's almost the same as freehold, so it shouldn't impact the saleability significantly.
At the other extreme, if it's, say, fifty five years it is bound to have a material effect on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be mortgageable. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be set out in the lease which should be made available to your property lawyer.
