About to place an offer on a leasehold property in Leytonstone. The estate agents assure me that it is usual for flats in Leytonstone to have less than 75 years left on the lease. I am getting a mortgage with Platform. Will the property be mortgageable given that the lease has 72 years to go.
Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are securing a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition.

I am buying a new build flat in Leytonstone. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Leytonstone
Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. 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. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.
In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Leytonstone and how can your lawyers assist?
The 1954 Act affords security of tenure to commercial lessees, granting the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a new tenancy and remain in occupation when the lease reaches an end. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing solicitors who use the act for protection and assist with commercial conveyancing in Leytonstone
I am employed by a busy estate agency in Leytonstone where we see a few leasehold sales derailed as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given conflicting advice from local Leytonstone conveyancing solicitors. Can you confirm whether the vendor of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.
An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I own a ground floor flat in Leytonstone. In the absence of agreement between myself and the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the sum due for the purchase of the freehold?
Where there is a missing landlord or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to calculate the price payable.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Leytonstone residence is 36 New Wanstead in August 2010. The Tribunal arrived at a valuation of the premium for the freehold of £22,359. This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 73.92 years.
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to have a meeting at the offices of the bank conveyancing panel solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Leytonstone so that I can pop in to their offices when needed.
