I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Hoxton I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hoxton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Hoxton. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Hoxton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
