I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Bolton I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Bolton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I am employed by a busy estate agency in Bolton where we have experienced a number of leasehold sales jeopardised as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given conflicting advice from local Bolton conveyancing firms. Can you confirm whether the vendor of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser 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 at the same time as completion of the sale.

An alternative approach is 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.

    The answer will be useful as a) areas may result in problems in the block as the communal areas may start to deteriorate where repairs remain unpaid b) if the leaseholders have a dispute with the managing agents you will want to have complete disclosure Make sure you investigate if there is anything that is prohibited in the lease.
