Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Notting Hill I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Notting Hill in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
I have been advised by numerous estate agents in Notting Hill to get a quote from a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to recommend your site rather than a competitor’s?
We refuse to give any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
