I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Totteridge I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Totteridge in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

If you need a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent informed us that the seller will only go ahead if we use their preferred conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Totteridge

It is improbable the owners are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to use your own,trusted Totteridge conveyancing firm - rather thanthe ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.

Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Totteridge with the aim of saving time on the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Totteridge can be reduced if you appoint lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ solicitors.
  • If you have had conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are settled prior to the flat being put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where a dispute is unresolved. You will have to accept that you will have to pay any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as historic rather than unsettled. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s approval? Have you, for example laid down wooden flooring? Totteridge leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or laying down wooden flooring calls for a licence issued by the Landlord consenting to such alterations. Should you dont have the consents to hand do not contact the landlord without contacting your solicitor before hand. A minority of Totteridge leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their lawyers.
