Flying freeholds in Peterborough are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

I only have 62 years left on my lease in Peterborough. I need to extend my lease but my landlord is missing. What are my options?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the Court. However, you will be required to prove that you have done all that could be expected to locate the landlord. On the whole a specialist may be useful to carry out a search and to produce an expert document to be used as evidence that the freeholder can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer both on investigating the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Peterborough.

I am the registered owner of a garden flat in Peterborough, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Peterborough with a long lease are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease terminates on 21st October 2076

With 54 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £32,300 and £37,400 plus professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

This afternoon I was informed that the owner must send the insurance paperwork for the flat above in addition. Why would my conveyancer need to review the insurance for the other flat? Is it really required? We have been waiting for the previous month…

It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in Peterborough to discover Conveyancing in Peterborough in a minority of cases reveals that the lease provides for the tenant's to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the entire premises - which is definitely better. You should clarify with your conveyancing practitioner but it would seem that your lawyer is attempting to establish that the entire building is insured. Insuring your residence is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the other flat cannot be reconstructed for lack of insurance cover.
