I invested in buying a ground floor flat in Waterlooville, conveyancing having been completed May 2007. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Waterlooville with over 90 years remaining are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2088

You have 69 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence.

We are midway through buying a residence in Waterlooville. Conveyancing lawyer has called to say the property is "Leasehold". Will this likely adversely affect our home loan valuation?

Waterlooville conveyancing does not in most situations involve leasehold houses. The key factor here is the remaining lease term and the ground rent. If there are over a hundred years remaining with a peppercorn rent, it's almost the same as freehold, so it shouldn't impact the marketability too much.

At the other extreme, if it's, say, Sixty years it is bound to have a significant impact on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be mortgageable. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be specified in the lease which should be made available to your conveyancer.
