At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Standish accepted, the vendors do however have a tied purchase. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Standish. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Clydesdale started?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Standish conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Standish is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Standish are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

I am looking at a couple of maisonettes in Standish both have approximately fifty years unexpired on the lease term. Will this present a problem?

There is no doubt about it. A leasehold flat in Standish is a wasting asset as a result of the reducing lease term. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it reduces the marketability of the premises. For most buyers and lenders, leases with less than eighty years become less and less attractive. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of premises with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Standish conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. A more straightforward and quicker method of extending would be to contact your landlord directly and sound him out on the prospect of extending the lease. They may agree to a smaller lump sum and an increase in the ground rent, but to shorter extension terms in return. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Standish - Examples of Queries Prior to Purchasing

    Does the lease contain onerous restrictions? You should be aware that where the lease has less than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the value of the property. Check with your bank that they are content with the length of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably have to extend the lease at some point and you need to have some idea of what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the premises for a couple of years before you are entitled to extend the lease.
