    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please supply a car parking plan.

My partner and I may need to sub-let our Chorley and Eccleston 1st floor flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We used a Chorley and Eccleston conveyancing firm in 2002 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Chorley and Eccleston do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I own a studio flat in Chorley and Eccleston, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Chorley and Eccleston with an extended lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2083

With only 64 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £14,300 and £16,400 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

My husband and I have an offer in principle from Lloyds TSB Bank who have advised we could borrow up to £400k. At what point do we need to instruct a practitioner for conveyancing? Chorley and Eccleston is where we are purchasing.

It would be wise to instruct a conveyancer now and ask them to create a file on your behalf. This will enable: 1) the estate agent to send out the Sales Memo to the relevant parties 2) the seller’s conveyancer to send out the draft paperwork. That being said, do not ask your lawyer to start searches until you receive your valuation report via Lloyds TSB Bank and you are willing to move forward.
