I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Northleach I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Northleach for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce 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 can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

My plan is to acquire a garden maisonette in Northleach. Conveyancing lawyer is awaiting, from the seller, building insurance schedule. I was told today I was advised that the owner must forward the insurance paperwork for the flat above also. Why would my lawyer want to check the insurance for the flat above? Is it strictly required? We have been waiting for the previous fortnight…
It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in Northleach to discover Conveyancing in Northleach in a minority of cases reveals that the lease provides for the tenant's to insure their individual flats as opposed to the freeholder insuring the complete property - which is clearly better. You should contact your conveyancer but it would seem that your lawyer is looking to verify that the entire building is insured. Insuring a ground floor apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be reconstructed for lack of insurance.
