Jane (my partner) and I may need to let out our Haywards Heath ground floor flat for a while due to a new job. We used a Haywards Heath conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
Your lease governs relations between the freeholder and you the flat owner; in particular, it will say if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Haywards Heath do not prevent subletting altogether – such a provision would undoubtedly devalue the property. In most cases there is a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the sublease.
I inherited a 1st floor flat in Haywards Heath, conveyancing was carried out in 2002. 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 Haywards Heath with a long lease are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease expires on 21st October 2084
With just 65 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £13,300 and £15,400 as well as legals.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
