Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Fleet I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Fleet suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you need a mortgage that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

My fiance and I may need to sub-let our Fleet ground floor flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Fleet conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

A lease dictates relations between the landlord and you the flat owner; specifically, it will say if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. The majority of leases in Fleet do not contain subletting altogether – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the property. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a copy of the tenancy agreement.

I am the registered owner of a garden flat in Fleet, conveyancing having been completed June 1999. 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? Equivalent flats in Fleet with an extended lease are worth £202,000. The ground rent is £60 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2076

You have 57 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £28,500 and £33,000 plus legals.

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 without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.

Our financial adviser has recommended their solicitor for my conveyancing in Fleet - Is it not simpler advisable to just use them?

This is not necessarily the case and you are free to use whichever conveyancing practitioner you decide for your Fleet home move. A conveyancer put forward by a 3rd party adviser may not always be the right conveyancer, they may recommend their own conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your conveyancer and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
