We own a leasehold flat in Shelfield. Conveyancing was finished in 21012. I have heard that I should not let the lease length fall too short. Is this right?
Shelfield residential long term leases are for a set term - usually 99 years when they commenced. However many appartments in Shelfield were constructed or converted in the 60’s and so these leases now have less than eighty years unexpired. This may seem like a long time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage lenders tend to need leases to have a minimum of seventy five years unexpired to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are getting close to eighty years. To increase the marketability of your property you should be thinking about whether to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. There are also strong financial reasons to taking action before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease falls below eighty years the amount you have to pay to extend starts to increase.
