Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Todmorden I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Todmorden in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
I’m about to sell my ground floor flat in Todmorden. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have just received a yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you discharge the invoice as normal because all rents and maintenance payments will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

You should be aware if it is no more than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the value of the flat. Check with your lender that they are content with the length of the lease.
