I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Lingfield I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Lingfield suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

Are there frequently found deficiencies that you encounter in leases for Lingfield properties?

Leasehold conveyancing in Lingfield is not unique. All leases are unique and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain provisions are erroneous. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. Repairing obligations to or maintain elements of the property

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. HSBC Bank, Barnsley Building Society, and TSB 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 problematic they may refuse to provide security, obliging the buyer to withdraw.

I invested in buying a basement flat in Lingfield, conveyancing having been completed in 2012. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Similar flats in Lingfield with an extended lease are worth £222,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2090

With just 71 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

My husband and I are hoping to buy a 2 room bungalowin Lingfield with a loan from a bank. We would like to retain our conveyancer in Lingfield but our bank says he's not approved on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct from the our bank panel solicitors or stay with our Lingfield conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The bank home loan issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including most conveyancing solicitors in Lingfield : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
