Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Mere I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Mere for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

    A provision to repair to or maintain elements of the property

With only 73 years unexpired the likely cost is going to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

There are a lot of houses in Mere on unadopted lanes. We are purchasing such a house. What are the pros and cons of purchasing a house on a privately owned road?

Mere conveyancing lawyers are well versed in transacting homeson private. Your conveyancer should review the title to identify any rights or responsibilities.
