I today plan to offer on a house that appears to tick a lot of boxes, at a great price which is making it more attractive. I have just been informed that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are particular concerns buying a leasehold house in Aberystwyth. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed. Will my lawyers set out the implications of buying a leasehold house in Aberystwyth ?

The majority of houses in Aberystwyth are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local solicitor who is familiar with the area who can assist with the conveyancing process. We note that you are buying in Aberystwyth in which case you should be shopping around for a Aberystwyth conveyancing practitioner and check that they have experience in transacting on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. Being a leaseholder you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want with the house. The lease comes with conditions such as obtaining the freeholder’spermission to conduct changes to the property. It may be necessary to pay a contribution towards the maintenance of the estate where the property is located on an estate. Your lawyer should report to you on the legal implications.

I inherited a ground floor flat in Aberystwyth, conveyancing formalities finalised December 2010. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Aberystwyth with over 90 years remaining are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2084

With only 65 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £13,300 and £15,400 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

As a leasehold owner I am on the hook for a service charge for my first floor flat in Aberystwyth. As a result of flawed financial planning I slipped into arrears with remittance. The managing agents agreed a clearance schedule but there remains about £2000 currently outstanding.

I am under pressure to sell and I am worried this can jeopardize the sale if I have to discharge the arrears in advance. Do I have to settle before - is this possible?

The solicitor handing your Aberystwyth sale should be in a position to negotiate with the management company, and agree with them whether or not they would accept settlement out of the sale proceeds. This is indicative of why it is sensible to instruct a solicitor in Aberystwyth as they are likely to enjoy an established relationship with the management company.
