I have been advised by a number of selling agents in Havering to find a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to promote your site over a competitor’s?

We don’t make any financial incentive for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I am employed by a busy estate agency in Havering where we have witnessed a number of flat sales derailed due to short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local Havering conveyancing firms. Can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension process for the buyer?

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. This means 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 needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the sale.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord 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.

Despite our best efforts, we have been unsuccessful in trying to reach an agreement for a lease extension in Havering. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?
