    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Upper Walthamstow I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Upper Walthamstow 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 that many years 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 can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

I've found a house that appears to meet my requirements, at a reasonable figure which is making it more attractive. I have just discovered that the title is leasehold rather than freehold. I would have thought that there are issues purchasing a house with a leasehold title in Upper Walthamstow. Conveyancing advisers have are soon to be instructed. Will they explain the issues?

The majority of houses in Upper Walthamstow are freehold rather than leasehold.

The lease will likely included provisions for example requiring the landlord’sconsent to conduct changes to the property.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can I apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Upper Walthamstow conveyancing firm to assist?

Where there is a missing freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to arrive at the price.
