Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Barnet is more expensive?
The conveyancing fees on a leasehold premises in Barnet is frequently higher as compared to a freehold transaction. This is due to the supplemental time required in corresponding with the freeholder and management company to collate the information concerning whether the rent and maintenance charges have been discharged and whether there are any large sums expected to be spent in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

I am employed by a reputable estate agent office in Barnet where we have witnessed a number of flat sales derailed as a result of short leases. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Barnet conveyancing firms. Could you confirm whether the vendor of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer can avoid having to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can a leaseholder make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Barnet conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?
Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Barnet conveyancing firm who can help.
