Most buyers of new build property in Kentish Town contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Kentish Town typically buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly.

I own a leasehold flat in Kentish Town. Conveyancing was finalised in 2010. I have read on a number of advice forums that I should not let the lease length fall too low. What is the reasoning?

Kentish Town leasehold properties are for a set term - often ninety nine years when they started. However a significant flats in Kentish Town were built or converted in the 70’s80’s and so these leases now have less than eighty years remaining. This may sound like plenty of time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions tend to need leases to have a minimum of seventy five years left to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are nearing seventy five years. To enhance your property value you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. You should note that there are advantages to doing so before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease is less than 80 years the amount you have to pay to extend starts to increase.
