Last January I purchased a leasehold house in Cubitt Town. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I own a leasehold flat in Cubitt Town. Conveyancing was finished in 2009. I have been told that I mustn’t let the the remaining lease term to get too short. Is this correct?

Cubitt Town leasehold properties are for a prescribed period - often ninety nine years when they commenced. However a significant appartments in Cubitt Town were built or converted in the 70’s80’s and so such leases now have less than 80 years remaining. That may seem like plenty of time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage lenders tend to need leases to have a minimum of seventy five years left to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are approaching 75 years. To enhance the marketability of your property you should be thinking about whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. You should note that there are advantages to taking action before the lease reaches even 80 years as when the lease falls below 80 years the premium you have to pay to extend starts to escalate.
