When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in Lechlade what are the most frequent lease problems?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Lechlade. Most leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are missing. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts. Service charge per centages that don't add up correctly leaving a shortfall

A defective lease will likely cause problems when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Santander, The Mortgage Works, and Godiva Mortgages Ltd all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the purchaser to pull out.

I purchased a split level flat in Lechlade, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar flats in Lechlade with an extended lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2082

With just 61 years unexpired the likely cost is going to span between £19,000 and £22,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
