Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Great Harwood

    If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Great Harwood I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Great Harwood suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

I'm remortgaging my current property to a buy to let loan with Bank of Ireland and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a deposit on another property. The area we are talking about is Great Harwood. Will your solicitors be able to act for both sets of mortgage companies and tie in the transactions?

Do use our search tool on this page to be sure that the lawyers are on the relevant lender panels. Having checked that they are your lawyer will be able to simultaneously deal with the two transactions but you should have a chat with you lawyer and make clear your expectations and needs.
