I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Hull East I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hull East for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

I am a negotiator for a long established estate agent office in Hull East where we have experienced a number of flat sales jeopardised as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Hull East conveyancing firms. Could you confirm whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the buyer?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
