  • If you have carried out any alterations to the property would they have required Landlord’s permission? Have you, for example laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Middleton state that internal structural alterations or addition of wooden flooring calls for a licence from the Landlord consenting to such changes. If you fail to have the approvals in place you should not contact the landlord without contacting your lawyer in the first instance. Many landlords or managing agents in Middleton levy fees for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should find out the actual amount of the charges. The management pack sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus reducing delays. The typical amount of time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most common cause of frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Middleton. If there is a history of any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved before the property is marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be nervous about purchasing a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to reveal the dispute as historic rather than ongoing.

Comparable properties in Middleton with over 90 years remaining are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2084

With 60 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £20,000 and £23,000 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
