Flying freeholds in Sheldon are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Sheldon may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection.

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 68 years left on my flat in Sheldon. I am keen to get lease extension but my freeholder is absent. What options are available to me?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to locate the lessor. On the whole an enquiry agent may be helpful to try and locate and prepare a report which can be used as proof that the landlord is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer both on proving the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Sheldon.

I inherited a studio flat in Sheldon, conveyancing having been completed in 2004. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar flats in Sheldon with an extended lease are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2104

With 80 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
