We own a leasehold flat in Derby. Conveyancing was finalised in 2009. I have heard that I should not allow the the remaining lease term to fall too low. Is this right?
Derby residential long term leases are for a prescribed term - usually just under one hundred years when they commenced. However a significant appartments in Derby were constructed or converted 25 or more years ago and so such leases now have under 80 years left to run. This may sound like a long time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions generally require leases to have at least 75 years left to be mortgageable. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are nearing eighty years. To enhance the marketability of your property you should be considering whether to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. Please note that there are significant benefits to doing so before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease falls below 80 years the amount you have to pay to extend starts to escalate.
