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.

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.
