I am looking at a two flats in Leconfield which have approximately forty five years left on the lease term. Will this present a problem?

There are no two ways about it. A leasehold flat in Leconfield is a deteriorating asset as a result of the shortening lease. The closer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it reduces the value of the property. For most purchasers and banks, leases with under 75 years become less and less marketable. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a residence with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Leconfield conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that the agreed terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

My hope is to purchase a garden maisonette in Leconfield. Conveyancing lawyer is waiting for, from the seller, building insurance documents. This morning I was advised that the owner must send the insurance paperwork for the flat above in addition. Why does my conveyancer need to check the insurance for the flat above? Is it really necessary? We have been waiting for the previous fortnight…

It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in Leconfield to discover Conveyancing in Leconfield in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the tenant's to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the whole premises - which is definitely preferable. Do check with your lawyer but it would appear that your conveyancing practitioner is attempting to establish that the entire building is insured. Insuring your flat is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the other flat cannot be rebuilt as a result of lack of insurance.
