My partner and I are intent on selling our house in Bethnal Green and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land.

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Bethnal Green I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bethnal Green in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

I am a negotiator for a busy estate agent office in Bethnal Green where we see a number of flat sales derailed due to short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local Bethnal Green conveyancing solicitors. Could you clarify whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?
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 sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
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 buyer.
