I was recommended by a number of estate agents in Woodhall Spa to find a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to market your site over alternative conveyancing organisations?

We own a leasehold flat in Woodhall Spa. Conveyancing was finalised in 2009. I have read on a number of advice forums that I should not let the lease length fall too low. Is this correct?

Woodhall Spa domestic long term leases are for a set term - normally 99 years when they commenced. However many flats in Woodhall Spa were built or converted in the 70’s80’s and so such leases now have less than eighty years left to run. That may seem like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions generally need leases to have at least 75 years remaining to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are approaching 75 years. To enhance your property value you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. You should note that there are strong financial reasons to taking action before the lease hits 80 years as when the lease is less than 80 years the amount you have to pay to extend starts to escalate.
