I have a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Snaresbrook. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Lloyds TSB Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. Is it worth asking Lloyds TSB Bank to clarify?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Snaresbrook and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.
I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Snaresbrook. Before diving in I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Snaresbrook - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can a leaseholder make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Snaresbrook conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?
if there is a missing freeholder or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to judgment on the premium.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Snaresbrook flat is 36 New Wanstead in August 2010. The Tribunal arrived at a valuation of the premium for the freehold of £22,359. This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired term was 73.92 years.
I own a leasehold flat in Snaresbrook. Conveyancing was completed in last year. I have read on numerous consumer forums that I mustn’t allow the lease length get too short. What is the reasoning?
Snaresbrook leasehold properties are for a set term - normally ninety nine years when they started. However many appartments in Snaresbrook were constructed or converted 30 or more years ago and so such leases now have under eighty years remaining. This may seem like plenty of time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions on the whole require leases to have a minimum of seventy five years remaining 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 nearing 75 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 significant benefits to doing so before the lease hits 80 years as when the lease is below eighty years the amount to be paid to extend starts to escalate.
