I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agency in Alderley Edge where we have experienced a number of leasehold sales jeopardised due to short leases. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Alderley Edge conveyancing solicitors. Please can you clarify whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
As long as the seller has been the owner 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 buyer can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord 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.

You should not bank on moving on a set date until exchange of contracts occurs. Regardless of the promises the people you are buying from or selling to make, or your lender gives don't count on them.
