A high street Ditchling conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a national conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Ditchling. We have lived in Ditchling for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything.

I am looking at a couple of maisonettes in Ditchling which have approximately forty five years unexpired on the leases. Do I need to be concerned?

There are plenty of short leases in Ditchling. The lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As the lease gets shorter the value of the lease decreases and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is advisable to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.

This can differ from a few hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for buildings with lifts and large common grounds. In all probability there will be a ground rent for you to pay yearly, this is usually not a exorbitant figure, say about £25-£75 but you should to check as occasionally it can be many hundreds of pounds. It is important to be aware whether fixing the lift or some other significant cost is due in the foreseeable future to be shared between the tenants and will materially increase the the service costs or require a specific payment.
