The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agency in Norbury where we have experienced a number of leasehold sales jeopardised due to short leases. I have received contradictory information from local Norbury conveyancing solicitors. Could you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can commence the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or at the same time as completion of the sale.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord 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 purchaser.

Following years of negotiations we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Norbury. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
