Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your proprietorship will be documented by HMLR with a Title Number. It is possible to perform a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and secure up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for a small fee.

Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Kingsbury I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Kingsbury suitable, 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 anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
