There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 instructions. These obligations are not specific to conveyancing in Primrose Hill.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in Primrose Hill I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Primrose Hill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
