My husband and I may need to let out our Yelverton garden flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Yelverton conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time seek any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Yelverton do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.

I own a 1st floor flat in Yelverton, conveyancing was carried out in 2001. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Yelverton with a long lease are worth £165,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2100

With 77 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £7,600 and £8,800 plus legals.

The figure 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 without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
