I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Carmarthen is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Carmarthen are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Carmarthen you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Carmarthen may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

I own a leasehold flat in Carmarthen. Conveyancing was completed in 2009. I have heard that I should not let the the remaining lease term to get too short. Is this right?

Carmarthen residential long term leases are for a fixed period - usually 99 years when they started. However a significant flats in Carmarthen were constructed or converted in the 60’s and so such leases now have fewer than 80 years unexpired. This may sound like plenty of time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions generally require leases to have at least seventy five years unexpired to adequate security. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are nearing eighty years. To increase your property value you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. There are also advantages to taking action before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease falls below eighty years the amount you have to pay to extend starts to escalate.
