My wife and I may need to sub-let our Porth garden flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Porth conveyancing practice in 2004 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

Your lease governs the relationship between the landlord and you the flat owner; specifically, it will set out if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. Most leases in Porth do not contain subletting altogether – such a provision would undoubtedly devalue the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the sublease.

I am the registered owner of a studio flat in Porth, conveyancing was carried out in 2005. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding properties in Porth with over 90 years remaining are worth £186,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2077

With only 53 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to range between £27,600 and £31,800 plus legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
