Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Tonbridge I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Tonbridge for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
Why is it not possible to complete my conveyancing in Tonbridge on Good Friday?
This is due to the fact that on completion the funds will pass between the banks of the purchaser and seller's property lawyer and currently this can only occur on a business day. So you can't complete on a saturday or sunday either.
