I own a terraced Edwardian property in Cleobury Mortimer. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and National Westminster Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Cleobury Mortimer and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Cleobury Mortimer I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Cleobury Mortimer for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan that many years may be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
