Regarding the next stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market.

I own a leasehold flat in Robin Hoods Bay. Conveyancing was completed in 2009. I have heard that I should not let the lease length get too low. Why is that a problem?

Robin Hoods Bay residential long term leases are for a prescribed period - usually ninety nine years when they started. However a significant appartments in Robin Hoods Bay were built or converted in the 70’s80’s and so such leases now have fewer than eighty years unexpired. This may seem like plenty of time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions generally require leases to have a minimum of 75 years left to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are getting close to 75 years. To enhance the marketability of your property you should be thinking about whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. There are also strong financial reasons to doing so before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease is less than eighty years the amount to be paid to extend starts to get a lot more expensive.
