I have just started marketing my basement apartment in Castleton. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have recently had a yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the maintenance contribution as you normally would as all ground rent and maintenance charges will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I own a basement flat in Castleton, conveyancing having been completed in 2003. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding flats in Castleton with over 90 years remaining are worth £255,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease runs out on 21st October 2095

With 73 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
