I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Flitwick I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Flitwick for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account.

You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

  • The majority of landlords or Management Companies in Flitwick charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold property. You or your lawyers should find out the fee that they propose to charge. The management information sought on or before finding a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most common cause of delay in leasehold conveyancing in Flitwick. If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should ensure that you hold the original share document. Organising a duplicate share certificate can be a time consuming process and slows down many a Flitwick home move. Where a duplicate share is necessary, do contact the company officers or managing agents (if applicable) for this sooner rather than later. You believe that you know the number of years remaining on your lease but you should double-check via your conveyancers. A buyer’s lawyer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the remaining number of years is less than 75 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an as soon as possible that you identify whether the lease requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale. If there is a history of conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where a dispute is ongoing. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose details of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to present the dispute as historic as opposed to unresolved.
