I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Tywyn I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Tywyn suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to 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 consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
We're new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent has warned us that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's recommended conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Tywyn
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this requirement. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Try to communicate with the owners directly and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Tywyn conveyancing firm - as opposed tothe ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by corporate headquarters.
We are in the middle of purchasing a residence in Tywyn. Conveyancing lawyer has phoned to say the property is "Leasehold". Does this make a difference on our home loan valuation?
Tywyn conveyancing does not ordinarily involve leasehold houses. The key factor here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If there are over a hundred years remaining with a peppercorn rent, it's virtually freehold, so it’s unlikely to impact the marketability significantly.
At the other extreme, if it's, say, 50 years it is bound to have a adverse effect on the value, and most likely wouldn't be acceptable to the mortgage company. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be stated in the lease to be supplied to your property lawyer.
