My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the property agent told us that the owners will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Ashton

It is improbable the owners are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to appoint your preferred Ashton conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing figures set by corporate headquarters.

What makes a Ashton lease unacceptable for security purposes?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Ashton. Most leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain provisions are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Insurance obligations Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.

A defective lease will likely cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Lloyds TSB Bank, Bank of Scotland, and Britannia all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, obliging the purchaser to pull out.

I purchased a leasehold flat in Ashton, conveyancing formalities finalised in 1996. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding flats in Ashton with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2084

With only 63 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £16,200 and £18,600 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
