Harry (my fiance) and I may need to rent out our Bordon garden flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a Bordon conveyancing firm in 2001 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

Your lease dictates the relationship between the freeholder and you the flat owner; specifically, it will set out if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. The majority of leases in Bordon do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a clause would adversely affect the market value the flat. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the sublease.

I am the registered owner of a split level flat in Bordon, conveyancing formalities finalised May 2009. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding flats in Bordon with an extended lease are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 per annum. The lease finishes on 21st October 2071

With just 52 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £29,500 and £34,000 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
