I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Wendover I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Wendover in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
I have been pointed in your direction by a few property agents in Wendover to choose a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers over and above a competitor’s?
We refuse to offer any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

How does one as executor remove a deceased person's details from the title deeds for a house in Wendover?
Where a Wendover property is co-owned and one of the proprietors dies, the name will not automatically be removed from the title deeds. You are not required to amend the title as in the event of a sale your lawyer would just be required to supply proof why the co owner is missing from the contract, typically this is in the form of a grant of probate.
With a view to making things smoother in the future you may arrange to have the deceased name removed from the title entries by submitting an application to HM Land Registry with proof of the death. There is no charge from the Registry for this service.
