We own a leasehold flat in Polegate. Conveyancing was finished in five years ago. I have heard that I should not let the the remaining lease term to get too low. Is this right?
Polegate residential long term leases are for a prescribed term - normally ninety nine years when they commenced. However a significant appartments in Polegate were constructed or converted in the 60’s and so these leases now have fewer than eighty years unexpired. That may seem like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage companies generally require 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 increase the marketability of your property you should be considering whether to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. There are also strong financial reasons to doing so before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease falls below 80 years the amount to be paid to extend starts to get a lot more expensive.
