I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Seaford. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Seaford - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

    What restrictions exist in the Seaford Lease? If a Seaford lease has fewer than eighty years it will impact the value of the property. It is worth checking with your lender that they are happy with residual term of the lease.

For most Seafordlease extensions you would need to own the property for 24 months in order to be eligible to extend the lease. It would be sensible to investigate if there is anything that is prohibited in the lease. For instance plenty of leases prohibit pets being allowed in certain buildings in Seaford. If you love the apartmentin Seaford however your cat is not allowed to move with you then you will be presented with a difficult compromise.

Nearly all properties in Seaford should appear. Have you endevoured to search to simply the postcode. Normally it will mention all the residences within that postcode. Where recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought back in the 60’s it's conceivable it may be unregistered.
