I work for a long established estate agency in Nantwich where we see a number of flat sales derailed due to short leases. I have received inconsistent advice from local Nantwich conveyancing firms. Can you clarify whether the seller of a flat can instigate the lease extension process 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 kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

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 buyer.

I own a leasehold flat in Nantwich, conveyancing was carried out in 2007. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Nantwich with an extended lease are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease expires on 21st October 2084

With just 66 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £11,400 and £13,200 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
