Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancing practitioner will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend.

What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Buckhurst Hill conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your lawyer is on the Lloyds approved list. Regarding the next phase this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market.

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.

I decided to have a survey done on a house in Buckhurst Hill before appointing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor advised that some banks may not give a loan on such a house.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Buckhurst Hill.

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the conveyancer who will be doing your conveyancing in Buckhurst Hill.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique person, not a case reference.

There are only Fifty years unexpired on my lease in Buckhurst Hill. I am keen to get lease extension but my landlord is absent. What options are available to me?

If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to track down the lessor. On the whole an enquiry agent should be useful to conduct investigations and prepare a report to be used as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor both on proving the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Buckhurst Hill.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such issues? Can you recommend a Buckhurst Hill conveyancing firm to assist?
