I am the only recipient of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Motspur Park. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this obligation primarily exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

As solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Motspur Park I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Motspur Park in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
I am employed by a reputable estate agency in Motspur Park where we have experienced a few flat sales derailed as a result of short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local Motspur Park conveyancing solicitors. Please can you confirm whether the vendor of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I have had difficulty in trying to purchase the freehold in Motspur Park. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?
