Balham leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Balham I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Balham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Balham. Before I get started I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Balham - 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.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Balham property is First Floor Flat 152a Ramsden Road in June 2009. The net result of the tribunals calculation produced a premium payable of £23,975. This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 56.67 years.
