We own a leasehold flat in Upper Tooting. Conveyancing was finished in five years ago. I have heard that I mustn’t let the the remaining lease term to fall too short. What is the reasoning?

Upper Tooting domestic long term leases are for a fixed term - often ninety nine years when they started. However many flats in Upper Tooting were built or converted 35 or more years ago and so such leases now have fewer than 80 years left to run. That may sound like plenty of time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions on the whole require leases to have at least seventy five years unexpired to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are approaching eighty years. To enhance the saleability of your property you should be considering whether to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. Furthermore advantages to doing so before the lease hits 80 years as when the lease is below eighty years the premium you have to pay to extend starts to get a lot more expensive.
