One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds.

Your original mortgage agreement with Skipton will provide that you need their approval prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Skipton’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Skipton directly. You need not do this via a Skipton conveyancing panel firm.

I inherited a split level flat in Shinfield and Arborfield, conveyancing formalities finalised in 1998. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Shinfield and Arborfield with over 90 years remaining are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease expires on 21st October 2091

With just 69 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
