Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Norris Green I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease.

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Norris Green from the point of view of saving time on the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Norris Green can be bypassed if you get in touch lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold information needed by the buyers’ lawyers.
  • In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? In particular have you installed wooden flooring? Norris Green leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or laying down wooden flooring calls for a licence from the Landlord approving such works. Should you fail to have the consents to hand you should not communicate with the landlord without checking with your lawyer first. If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you hold the original share document. Organising a replacement share certificate can be a lengthy formality and slows down many a Norris Green home move. If a duplicate share is needed, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (if applicable) for this as soon as possible. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but you should verify this via your conveyancers. A buyer’s lawyer will be unlikely to recommend their client to where the lease term is below 80 years. It is therefore essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease term for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale.
