I am about to put a bid on a leasehold apartment in Barnehurst. The property agents tell me that it is the norm for flats in Barnehurst to have less than 75 years unexpired on the lease. I am taking out a mortgage with Accord Mortgages. Will the property be mortgageable given that the lease has 70 years remaining.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are obtaining a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Accord Mortgages have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 18/1/2021 the requirements read as follows :

85 years from the date of completion of the mortgage. Please ensure that you explain the implications of a short term lease to the borrower.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Barnehurst. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Barnehurst?

My wife and I have a terraced Victorian house in Barnehurst. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Leeds Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Barnehurst and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Barnehurst is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Barnehurst are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Barnehurst you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Barnehurst may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
