    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. 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. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please supply a car parking plan.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Willesden I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Willesden suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted.

You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

Last April I purchased a leasehold property in Willesden. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
