I am attracted to a two maisonettes in West Kirby which have in the region of forty five years unexpired on the leases. Do I need to be concerned?

There are plenty of short leases in West Kirby. The lease is a right to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As the lease shortens the value of the lease deteriorates and results in it becoming more expensive to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is advisable to extend the lease term. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We recommend you get professional assistance from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.

With just 57 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £28,500 and £33,000 plus professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
