I work for a busy estate agency in Hamworthy where we have experienced a few flat sales put at risk due to short leases. I have received inconsistent advice from local Hamworthy conveyancing solicitors. Could you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can start the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser 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 has to be done before, or at the same time as completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible 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 purchaser.

My a dozen years ago. He has got married, widowed and is now married again. He now intends to the sell the Hamworthy property. I think he will just be requested to provide a copy of the marriage certificates to the property lawyer but he is concerned it will hold up the sale of the flat. Should he appoint a lawyer to update the Land Registry details for the house?
It is not absolutely necessary to bring up to date the register providing you have the proof needed to demonstrate how the change of name occurred.
Any purchaser’s conveyancer should examine the registered information and require evidence to prove the name change for example marriage certificates.
