For instance, the vendor, selling agent and sometimes a lender. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Histon should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the process whose interest is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.

There is not much else in Histon in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you need a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

We own a leasehold flat in Histon. Conveyancing was completed in five years ago. I have been told that I mustn’t allow the the remaining lease term to fall too short. Is this right?

Histon leasehold properties are for a set term - normally ninety nine years when they started. However a significant appartments in Histon were built or converted 35 or more years ago and so these leases now have fewer than 80 years remaining. That may seem like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage companies generally need leases to have at least 75 years left to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are nearing seventy five years. To increase the saleability of your property you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. There are also strong financial reasons to taking action before the lease reaches even 80 years as when the lease falls below 80 years the premium you have to pay to extend starts to escalate.
