I have just appointed agents to market my garden flat in Howden. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have recently had a yearly service charge demand – what should I do?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the service charge as usual given that all ground rent and service payments should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I invested in buying a basement flat in Howden, conveyancing having been completed in 2004. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable flats in Howden with over 90 years remaining are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2086

You have 64 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £15,200 and £17,600 plus costs.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
