Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Boncath I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Boncath suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
If you require a home loan that many years will be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Boncath?
Boncath conveyancing on leasehold flats often requires the purchaser’s lawyer sending enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address such questions most will be willing to do so. They are entitled to levy a reasonable administration fee for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some situations it exceeds £800. The management information fee required by the landlord must be sent together with a synopsis of rights and obligations in relation to administration charges, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have little choice but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.

Is there a share of the freehold? Generally speaking the outlay for major works tend not to be included within service charges, albeit that some managing agents in Boncath require leaseholders to pay into a sinking fund and this is used to offset against major repairs or maintenance. Can you inform me if there are any major works in the near future that will likely increase the maintenance fees?
