I own a semi-detached Victorian property in Hungerford. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Barnsley Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Hungerford and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

I have recently realised that I have Seventy years remaining on my flat in Hungerford. I need to extend my lease but my landlord is missing. What are my options?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to locate the freeholder. For most situations an enquiry agent may be useful to conduct investigations and to produce an expert document which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor both on devolving into the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Hungerford.

I bought a garden flat in Hungerford, conveyancing formalities finalised 9 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in Hungerford with an extended lease are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2077

With only 55 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

My partner and I plan to purchase our 1st home in Hungerford. Conveyancing practitioner already chosen. The mortgage adviser pointed out that a survey is not needed as the property is just fifteen years old.

At the very least you should order a Home Buyer's Report. Given the premises is over 10 years old the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report could be enough. The report should highlight any obvious issues and recommend additional investigation if relevant. If there are any signs of material issues obtain a comprehensive structural survey.
