I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Westbury Park I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Westbury Park in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

If other friends have used your friend and they were impressed that should surpass using an unfamiliar Westbury Park conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.

I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agent office in Westbury Park where we have witnessed a number of flat sales jeopardised as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received conflicting advice from local Westbury Park conveyancing solicitors. Can you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the sale.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

Westbury Park Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - A selection of Questions you should consider before Purchasing

    It is important to be aware whether changing the roof or some other significant cost is due in the foreseeable future that will be shared by the leasehold owners and could well materially increase the the maintenance costs or necessitate a specific invoice. Is there a share of the freehold? If a Westbury Park lease has no more than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the value of the apartment. Check with your lender that they are content with the length of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely need a lease extension sooner rather than later and it is worth finding out how much this would cost. For most Westbury Parklease extensions you would need to own the property for 24 months in order to be entitled to carry out a lease extension.
