My wife and I have a renovated Victorian property in Sacriston. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Lloyds TSB Bank. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Sacriston and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.

    Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Sacriston I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Sacriston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

The 1954 Act affords security of tenure to commercial lessees, granting the dueness to make a request to court for a new lease and remain in occupation at the end of an expired lease. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved.
