Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Grappenhall I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Grappenhall for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I work for a busy estate agency in Grappenhall where we have experienced a few flat sales derailed due to short leases. I have received inconsistent advice from local Grappenhall conveyancing firms. Could you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the sale.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
