If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I bought a house in Garstang last 23/9/2020 and to date it is still not registered with the Land Registry. It is part of a new estate and my conveyancing practitioner told me that it can take over a year to complete the registration formalities. I have called the Land Registry directly and they have informed me the original application was cancelled due to questions not being addressed in time. What can I do?

It is your property lawyer that you really need to contact in order to satisfy any concerns which have been raised as part of the registration process for your Garstang property. Normal Garstang conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the previous owner’s solicitor that they will help resolve any requisition raised by HMLR so it may be a case of seeking to enforce that undertaking if necessary.
