Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in South Molton I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in South Molton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
My solicitors in South Molton have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the mortgage company. Is it case that being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?
Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the mortgage company Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the mortgage company directly.
