I have a semi-detached Victorian house in Seven Sisters. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Chelsea Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Seven Sisters and other locations in 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 mortgage companies. You can also question the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Seven Sisters I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Seven Sisters in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

I am looking into buying my first house which is in Seven Sisters and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Seven Sisters. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Seven Sisters area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Seven Sisters. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

I am employed by a busy estate agent office in Seven Sisters where we see a few leasehold sales jeopardised as a result of short leases. I have received contradictory information from local Seven Sisters conveyancing solicitors. Could you confirm whether the vendor of a flat can commence the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

Following months of negotiations we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Seven Sisters. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

Absolutely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Seven Sisters conveyancing firm who can help.
