It is rare for properties in Lydney and has limited impact for conveyancing in Lydney but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

I’m about to sell my basement flat in Lydney. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have just received a half-yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as normal as all ground rent and maintenance payments should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I inherited a basement flat in Lydney, conveyancing was carried out 5 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease?

With just 75 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
