As long as the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be documented by HMLR with a Title Number. It is easy to execute a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and secure up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in Kensal Rise I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Kensal Rise suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Kensal Rise. Conveyancing and Nationwide Building Society mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Kensal Rise who previously acted has long since retired. Do I pay?

First contact HMLR to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. There is no need to instruct a Kensal Rise conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

My wife and I have hit a brick wall in seeking a lease extension in Kensal Rise. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to make a decision on the price payable.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Kensal Rise flat is 85A Chevening Road in August 2013. the Tribunals conclusions resulted in a payment of a premium for the new lease in the sum of £11,211 This case related to 1 flat.
