I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Bridport I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bridport for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan that many years will be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

I am a negotiator for a busy estate agent office in Bridport where we have witnessed a number of leasehold sales jeopardised as a result of short leases. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Bridport conveyancing firms. Please can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. 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 purchaser.
