I have been advised by a number of property agents in Newington to select a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers rather than another?

We don’t give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I own a leasehold flat in Newington. Conveyancing was finished in five years ago. I have been told that I mustn’t let the lease length get too low. Is this right?

Newington leasehold properties are for a fixed period - usually 99 years when they started. However many flats in Newington were built or converted in the 60’s and so such leases now have under 80 years left to run. This may seem like plenty of time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage lenders tend to need leases to have a minimum of 75 years unexpired to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are getting close to seventy five years. To maximise the saleability of your property you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. Please note that there are advantages to taking action before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease is below 80 years the premium you have to pay to extend starts to increase.
