Just contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Pembrokeshire who conducted the legals two years ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house move (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of similar values with a home loan from The Mortgage Works. It looks as though am now being charged double. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper online property lawyer?

    Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

I own a leasehold flat in Pembrokeshire. Conveyancing was finished in five years ago. I have read on a number of consumer forums that I mustn’t let the lease length fall too low. Is this right?

Pembrokeshire residential long term leases are for a prescribed term - usually 99 years when they started. However many flats in Pembrokeshire were constructed or converted 20 or more years ago and so such leases now have under eighty years remaining. This may sound like a long time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage lenders generally need leases to have at least seventy five years left to be mortgageable. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are nearing 75 years. To optimize your property value you should be thinking about whether to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. Please note that there are advantages to doing so before the lease hits 80 years as when the lease falls below eighty years the premium to be paid to extend starts to increase.
