I am employed by a busy estate agency in Hindley where we have witnessed a few flat sales jeopardised as a result of short leases. I have received contradictory information from local Hindley conveyancing firms. Could you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can start the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that 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. This means that the buyer can avoid having 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 disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible 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.

Hindley Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Queries Prior to buying

    Most Hindley leasehold flats will have a service charge for maintenance of the block invoiced on behalf of the landlord. If you buy the flat you will have to pay this contribution, normally periodically during the year. This may differ from two or three hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for buildings with lifts and large common areas. In all likelihood there will be a rentcharge for you to pay annual, normally this is not a significant sum, say about £50-£100 but you need to enquire as occasionally it could be surprisingly expensive. How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their service charge payments? What prohibitions are there in the Hindley Lease?

Why can't I complete our conveyancing in Hindley on a public holiday?

Because on completion the money will pass between the banks of the purchaser and owner’s conveyancer and at present this can only take place on a business day. It is not possible to complete on a saturday or sunday either.
