I am buying a new build house in Colliers Wood benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead.

I've found a house that appears to tick a lot of boxes, at a great price which is making it all the more appealing. I have since discovered that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are particular concerns buying a leasehold house in Colliers Wood. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been appointed. Will they explain the issues?

The majority of houses in Colliers Wood are freehold rather than leasehold.

First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. Being a tenant you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want with the house. The lease comes with conditions such as requiring the landlord’spermission to carry out alterations. You may also be required to pay a contribution towards the maintenance of the communal areas where the property is part of an estate. Your solicitor should appraise you on the various issues.

Following years of dialogue we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Colliers Wood. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

Where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the LVT to make a decision on the premium.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Colliers Wood flat is 14 Nutwell Street in January 2014. The premium payable for the acquisition of a new lease of the subject premises was in the sum of £30,523 This case affected 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 62.94 years.

We must stress this is not to be regarded as an insurance scheme. you will still required to cover any costs that the lawyer has outlayed on your behalf for example Colliers Wood local authority searches
