Much as we are happy to recommend a Braunstone conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to select a conveyancing solicitor is to have feedback from friends or family who have experience in using the firm that you are considering.

I am hoping to put an offer on a small detached house that seems to tick a lot of boxes, at a reasonable price which is making it all the more appealing. I have since discovered that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I am assuming that there are particular concerns buying a leasehold house in Braunstone. Conveyancing advisers have are about to be instructed. Will they explain the issues?

Most houses in Braunstone are freehold rather than leasehold. This is one of the situations where having a local solicitor used to dealing with such properties who can assist with the conveyancing process. it is apparent that you are purchasing in Braunstone so you should seriously consider looking for a Braunstone conveyancing solicitor and check that they have experience in advising on leasehold houses. As a matter of priority you will need to check the number of years remaining. Being a tenant you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want to the property. The lease will likely included provisions such as requiring the landlord’sconsent to conduct changes to the property. You may also be required to pay a contribution towards the upkeep of the communal areas where the house is located on an estate. Your lawyer should appraise you on the various issues.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Braunstone - A selection of Questions you should consider Prior to Purchasing

    The prefered form of lease structure is a share of the freehold. In this scenario the lessees benefit from control and although a managing agent is often retained if it is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent is directed by the tenants. The answer will be important as a) areas can cause problems in the block as the communal areas may begin to deteriorate where maintenance remain unpaid b) if the tenants have an issue with the running of the building you will wish to have all the details Make sure you investigate if there are any onerous restrictions in the lease. For example some leases prohibit pets being allowed in in a block in Braunstone. If you love the flatin Braunstone yet your dog can’t move with you then you will be presented with a hard compromise.

We own a leasehold flat in Braunstone. Conveyancing was finished in 2011. I have heard that I mustn’t allow the the remaining lease term to get too low. What is the reasoning?

Braunstone leasehold properties are for a prescribed term - often ninety nine years when they are first granted. However many appartments in Braunstone were built or converted 25 or more years ago and so such leases now have fewer than eighty years remaining. That may sound like plenty of time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions on the whole require leases to have at least 75 years left to adequate security. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are approaching 75 years. To maximise the saleability of your property you should be considering whether to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. Furthermore significant benefits to taking action before the lease hits 80 years as when the lease is less than eighty years the amount to be paid to extend starts to get a lot more expensive.
