I work for a busy estate agency in Marylebone where we have experienced a number of flat sales jeopardised as a result of short leases. I have received inconsistent advice from local Marylebone conveyancing solicitors. Can you confirm whether the vendor of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease 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. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, 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 purchaser.

Lots of house movers in Marylebone choose a local conveyancing practitioner so that they can visit just in case they have concerns, and to execute mortgage deeds without using the Royal Mail.

There is a distinct edge in opting for a solicitor nearby to the premises you are purchasing, due to the familiarity of the locality and possible local concerns - but this is debatable. The majority of conveyancers conduct their work via email and may be based anywhere.
