I own a leasehold flat in Chester. Conveyancing was completed in 21012. I have read on a number of consumer forums that I mustn’t allow the the remaining lease term to get too low. What is the reasoning?

Chester residential long term leases are for a prescribed term - often ninety nine years when they commenced. However a significant appartments in Chester were constructed or converted in the 70’s80’s and so these leases now have fewer than 80 years left to run. That may sound like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions generally need leases to have at least 75 years unexpired to be mortgageable. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are getting close to 75 years. To maximise the marketability of your property you should be thinking about whether to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. Furthermore strong financial reasons to doing so before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease falls below 80 years the amount to be paid to extend starts to get a lot more expensive.
