Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Marylebone. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Marylebone I like with open areas and station nearby, however it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Marylebone suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to choosing a Marylebone conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

When appointing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Marylebone conveyancing practice) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We suggest that you make enquires with several firms including non Marylebone conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be helpful:

    Can they put you in touch with clients in Marylebone who can give a testimonial? If they are not ALEP accredited then why not?

We have reached the end of our tether in trying to purchase the freehold in Marylebone. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

in cases where there is a absentee 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 Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to assess the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Marylebone premises is Flats 37 & 39 88/90 Portland Place in December 2010. The Tribunal determined that the premium payable for the lease extensions in respect of these two flats is as follows:- For Flat 37, the sum of £385,230.00 For Flat 39, the sum of £436,780.00 This case affected 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 24.02 years.

I am buying a flat mortgage free. My lawyer has been handed with two distinct forms of photographic ID, bank statement, numerous utility bills. Now he needs a copy from a probate lawyer advising that the funds are in place and that it has come from inheritance and not via illegitimate means.

For some years now requires conveyancing solicitors as well as banks, building societies and other financial institutes to obtain satisfactory evidence of the identity of the client. This is because solicitors who deal with money and property on behalf of their clients can be used by criminals wishing to launder money. In order to comply with the law of money laundering, your Marylebone conveyancing lawyer will need to obtain evidence of your identity as as well as make sure that your funds are legitimate.
