I own a leasehold flat in Wallasey. Conveyancing was completed in 2010. I have read on various consumer forums that I should not let the the remaining lease term to get too short. Is this right?

Wallasey leasehold properties are for a set period - normally ninety nine years when they started. However a significant appartments in Wallasey were built or converted in the 60’s and so these leases now have fewer than eighty years remaining. That may seem like plenty of time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage lenders generally require leases to have at least seventy five years unexpired to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are getting close to seventy five years. To increase the saleability of your property you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. Please note that there are strong financial reasons to taking action before the lease reaches even 80 years as when the lease is below eighty years the premium you have to pay to extend starts to escalate.
