I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Penryn I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Penryn suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
I have just appointed agents to market my 2 bed flat in Penryn. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently had a quarterly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as usual given that all rents and maintenance payments should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
I purchased a split level flat in Penryn, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension?
