Non domestic conveyancing in Consett incorporates a broad range of advice, given by qualified solicitors, relating to business premises.

Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of leases.

I am employed by a long established estate agency in Consett where we have experienced a few leasehold sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Consett conveyancing firms. Could you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

I own a basement flat in Consett, conveyancing was carried out in 2011. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding properties in Consett with an extended lease are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2095

You have 75 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information 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 take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
