Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Henbury is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Henbury are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Henbury you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Henbury may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Henbury from the perspective of saving time on the sale process?

  • Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Henbury can be avoided if you instruct lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ conveyancers.
  • You may think that you are aware of the number of years left on your lease but it would be wise to verify this by asking your lawyers. A purchaser's lawyer will not be happy to advise their client to proceed with the purchase of a leasehold property the lease term is under 80 years. In the circumstances it is important at an early stage that you consider whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the Management Company, you should ensure that you have the original share certificate. Arranging a duplicate share certificate is often a time consuming process and slows down many a Henbury conveyancing deal. If a duplicate share is necessary, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (where relevant) for this as soon as possible. A minority of Henbury leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, you should notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand bank and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are financially capable of paying the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their lawyers.

I invested in buying a split level flat in Henbury, conveyancing formalities finalised 4 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in Henbury with a long lease are worth £265,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease terminates on 21st October 2100

You have 76 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
