You have 53 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £27,600 and £31,800 as well as professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. 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. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
I bought a house in Rusholm last 8/11/2021 and to date it is still not recorded with HM Land Registry. It is part of a new estate and my conveyancing practitioner told me that it can take 12 months to complete the registration formalities. I have spoken with the Land Registry directly and they say that the original application was cancelled due to questions not being addressed in time. Do I need to be concerned?
It is your lawyer that you must turn to here in order to satisfy any concerns which have been raised as part of the registration formalities for your Rusholm property. Normal Rusholm conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the previous owner’s property lawyer that they will assist in resolving any registration raised by HMLR so it may be a case of taking action to enforce that undertaking in some way.
