Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Hucknall. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Hucknall - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars 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.
Hucknall Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - A selection of Questions you should ask Prior to Purchasing
Where a Hucknall lease has no more than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the value of the flat. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are content with the length of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably have to extend the lease at some point and you need to have some idea of how much this would cost. Remember, in most cases you will need to own the property for 24 months in order to be eligible to carry out a lease extension. Are any of leasehold owners in dispute over their service charge payments?
