I'm buying a new build house in Osterley with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the extras as it would jeopardize my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

I own a leasehold flat in Osterley. Conveyancing was completed in 2010. I have been told that I should not allow the lease length fall too short. Is this right?
Osterley leasehold properties are for a prescribed period - normally 99 years when they are first granted. However many flats in Osterley were built or converted 25 or more years ago and so these leases now have under 80 years remaining. That may sound like a long time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage lenders on the whole require leases to have a minimum of seventy five years left to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are nearing seventy five years. To enhance the marketability of your property you should be thinking about whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. Furthermore strong financial reasons to taking action before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease falls below eighty years the amount you have to pay to extend starts to increase.
