If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, obliging the purchaser to withdraw.
I inherited a basement flat in Barnt Green, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. 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? Equivalent properties in Barnt Green with over 90 years remaining are worth £192,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2072
With 54 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to range between £32,300 and £37,400 plus professional fees.

You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
