Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Almondsbury I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Almondsbury suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
My wife and I may need to let out our Almondsbury basement flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Almondsbury conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
Your lease governs the relationship between the landlord and you the flat owner; specifically, it will indicate if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Almondsbury do not prevent subletting altogether – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.
