Harry (my fiance) and I may need to rent out our Stanstead Abbotts basement flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Stanstead Abbotts conveyancing firm in 2002 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

Some leases for properties in Stanstead Abbotts do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.

Corresponding properties in Stanstead Abbotts with an extended lease are worth £260,000. The ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2093

With 74 years left to run the likely cost is going to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.
