Frank (my husband) and I may need to rent out our Pentre Halkyn basement flat for a while due to a new job. We instructed a Pentre Halkyn conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
A lease dictates the relationship between the landlord and you the flat owner; specifically, it will indicate if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Pentre Halkyn do not prevent subletting altogether – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.
I acquired a 1st floor flat in Pentre Halkyn, conveyancing formalities finalised April 2005. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in Pentre Halkyn with a long lease are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2075
With only 52 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £29,500 and £34,000 as well as legals.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
