Confirmation of source of monies is also required under the money laundering laws as conveyancers are duty bound to check that the money you are using to purchase a property (be it the exchange deposit or the total purchase monies where you are buying without a mortgage) has originated from a reputable source (such as an inheritance) as opposed to the fruits of illegitimate behaviour.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two maisonettes in Kirkby Stephen which have approximately 50 years unexpired on the leases. Will this present a problem?

A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As the lease gets shorter the value of the lease decreases and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is often a good idea to extend the lease term. Sometimes it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.

Corresponding properties in Kirkby Stephen with an extended lease are worth £202,000. The ground rent is £55 per annum. The lease ceases on 21st October 2078

With 56 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £29,500 and £34,000 plus professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
