What makes a Market Harborough lease defective?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Market Harborough. All leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can result in certain clauses are missing. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Insurance obligations A provision to repair to or maintain parts of the property

A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage.

I bought a 1 bedroom flat in Market Harborough, conveyancing was carried out December 1998. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in Market Harborough with an extended lease are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease expires on 21st October 2085

With just 64 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £14,300 and £16,400 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

No, your firm may not act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower. However, your firm may act if a separate fee earner or separate partner within the firm acts for us.
