The conventional set of property information forms given to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual question of the owner to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding.

I am employed by a busy estate agency in Stalham where we see a number of flat sales derailed as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received conflicting advice from local Stalham conveyancing firms. Could you confirm whether the vendor of a flat can initiate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer can avoid having to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
