I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Cimla. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in March. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be affected by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation is principally there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

I can not work out if my bank requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Cimla bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Cimla conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they will not lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

Your solicitor must follow the CML Handbook section two provisions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

What are the common problems that you encounter in leases for Cimla properties?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Cimla. Most leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain clauses are not included. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. A duty to insure the building

You may have difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Nationwide Building Society, Coventry Building Society, and Britannia all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, obliging the buyer to withdraw.

I invested in buying a garden flat in Cimla, conveyancing formalities finalised September 2006. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Cimla with a long lease are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2084

With 65 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £13,300 and £15,400 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 extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. 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 taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
