I own a leasehold flat in Biggleswade. Conveyancing was finished in five years ago. I have heard that I should not allow the the remaining lease term to fall too short. What is the reasoning?

Biggleswade domestic long term leases are for a fixed term - usually just under one hundred years when they commenced. However a significant appartments in Biggleswade were constructed or converted in the 60’s and so such leases now have under 80 years unexpired. This may sound like plenty of time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage companies generally require leases to have a minimum of 75 years left to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are approaching 75 years. To enhance the saleability of your property you should be considering whether to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. Please note that there are significant benefits to doing so before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease falls below eighty years the premium you have to pay to extend starts to get a lot more expensive.
