There is not much else in Winsford suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account.

I am a negotiator for a long established estate agency in Winsford where we have experienced a few leasehold sales derailed as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Winsford conveyancing solicitors. Can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. 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 disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder 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.

I own a 2 bed flat in Winsford, conveyancing was carried out June 2010. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent properties in Winsford with an extended lease are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2083

With only 62 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £17,100 and £19,800 as well as professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
