I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Ambleside I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ambleside suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
As co-executor for the will of my grandmother I am disposing of a house in Neath but reside in Ambleside. My conveyancer (based 235 kilometers from mehas requested that I execute a stat dec ahead of the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing solicitor in Ambleside who can attest this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are based in Ambleside
Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed apartment in Ambleside. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have just had a yearly service charge demand – what should I do?
It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as you normally would because all ground rent and maintenance invoices should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
I purchased a 1st floor flat in Ambleside, conveyancing having been completed March 1995. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Ambleside with a long lease are worth £190,000. The ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2082
With 62 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £17,100 and £19,800 as well as costs.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
