I am looking at a two apartments in Whiston which have approximately 50 years unexpired on the leases. Will this present a problem?

A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As a lease gets shorter the saleability of the lease decreases and results in it becoming more costly to extend the lease. This is why it is often a good idea to extend the lease term. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage companies may be reluctant to lend money on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional assistance from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this field.

Equivalent properties in Whiston with an extended lease are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2090

With 68 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

My conveyancing in Whiston completes this Friday, yet the owners I am purchasing off wishes to move out 24 hours later at noon. Can I accept such a plan?

If you need a bank loan then your lawyer will insist that you have vacant possession on Friday - the lender will require it.
