I own a leasehold flat in Port Isaac. Conveyancing was finalised in 2009. I have heard that I should not allow the the remaining lease term to fall too low. What is the reasoning?

Port Isaac residential long term leases are for a set period - usually 99 years when they are first granted. However a significant flats in Port Isaac were built or converted in the 70’s80’s and so these leases now have less than 80 years left to run. That may sound like plenty of time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage companies on the whole require leases to have at least 75 years left to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are approaching eighty years. To optimize your property value you should be thinking about whether to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. There are also significant benefits to taking action before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease is below 80 years the premium you have to pay to extend starts to increase.
