I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Lansbury bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Lansbury conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they would not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the lawyer is on the bank panel, she or he must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Lansbury I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Lansbury for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to 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 speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
