I today plan to offer on a house that appears to be perfect, at a great price which is making it more attractive. I have since discovered that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are particular concerns buying a leasehold house in Mansfield. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been instructed. Will they explain the issues?

Most houses in Mansfield are freehold rather than leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area who can assist with the conveyancing process. it is apparent that you are purchasing in Mansfield so you should seriously consider shopping around for a Mansfield conveyancing solicitor and be sure that they have experience in advising on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the number of years remaining. Being a tenant you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want to the property. The lease will likely included provisions such as obtaining the freeholder’sconsent to conduct changes to the property. You may also be required to pay a contribution towards the maintenance of the communal areas where the property is located on an estate. Your solicitor should report to you on the legal implications.

I purchased a 1st floor flat in Mansfield, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent properties in Mansfield with an extended lease are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2086

With 63 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £16,200 and £18,600 as well as legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
