Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Chessington I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Chessington in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on our sale of a £150,000 apartment in Chessington in just under a week. The managing agents has quoted £312 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a leasehold conveyance in Chessington?

Chessington conveyancing on leasehold flats usually necessitates administration charges invoiced by managing agents :

    Addressing conveyancing due diligence questions Where consent is required before sale in Chessington Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Chessington leasehold property is £350. For Chessington conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to provide the information.

I am the registered owner of a ground floor flat in Chessington. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the amount due for a lease extension?
