Are there frequently found problems that you encounter in leases for Ross On Wye properties?

Leasehold conveyancing in Ross On Wye is not unique. Most leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are not included. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    Service charge per centages that don't add up correctly leaving a shortfall A provision to repair to or maintain elements of the premises

You will have difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Birmingham Midshires, Chelsea Building Society, and Barclays Direct all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.

I am the registered owner of a ground floor flat in Ross On Wye, conveyancing formalities finalised November 1998. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Ross On Wye with a long lease are worth £191,000. The ground rent is £55 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2076

With just 54 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
