Frank (my husband) and I may need to sub-let our Grange Over Sands basement flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Grange Over Sands conveyancing firm in 2001 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to seek any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

The lease dictates relations between the freeholder and you the flat owner; in particular, it will say if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. Most leases in Grange Over Sands do not prevent subletting altogether – such a provision would undoubtedly devalue the flat. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the sublease.

I acquired a split level flat in Grange Over Sands, conveyancing having been completed January 2001. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding flats in Grange Over Sands with over 90 years remaining are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease expires on 21st October 2086

With just 66 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £12,400 and £14,200 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
