I own a leasehold flat in Gedling. Conveyancing was finalised in 2010. I have been told that I should not let the the remaining lease term to get too low. Why is that a problem?

Gedling domestic long term leases are for a prescribed period - usually ninety nine years when they are first granted. However many appartments in Gedling were constructed or converted in the 60’s and so these leases now have fewer than eighty years unexpired. That may seem like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions generally need leases to have at least 75 years remaining to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are approaching eighty years. To enhance the saleability of your property you should be thinking about whether to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. There are also strong financial reasons to doing so before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease is below 80 years the premium to be paid to extend starts to increase.
