As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer may charge a fee for this.

Your original mortgage agreement with Aldermore will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in South London I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in South London in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to sub-let our South London ground floor flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We used a South London conveyancing practice in 2004 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in South London do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

Having spent years of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in South London. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a missing freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to assess the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a South London premises is Flat B 10 Grove Avenue in October 2013. Following a vesting order Clerkenwell and Shoreditch County Court 3rd July 2013 The tribunal determines that the premium payable for the lease extension was £36,215.00 This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 65.21 years.
