I own a leasehold flat in Garston. Conveyancing was finalised in last year. I have heard that I should not allow the the remaining lease term to get too short. Why is that a problem?

Garston residential long term leases are for a prescribed period - usually just under one hundred years when they started. However a significant flats in Garston were constructed or converted in the 60’s and so these leases now have fewer than 80 years remaining. This may seem like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions generally require leases to have at least seventy five years remaining to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are getting close to eighty years. To maximise your property value you should be thinking about whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. There are also advantages to doing so before the lease reaches even 80 years as when the lease falls below eighty years the premium to be paid to extend starts to increase.
