After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Wilford agreed to, the vendors do however have a connected purchase. The vendors have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Wilford. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with RBS?

It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Wilford conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your property lawyer is on the RBS approved list. Regarding the next steps this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers would apply for a home loan with RBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in Wilford.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of apartments in Wilford which have in the region of fifty years remaining on the lease term. Will this present a problem?

There is no doubt about it. A leasehold flat in Wilford is a wasting asset as a result of the shortening lease. The closer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it adversely affects the value of the property. The majority of buyers and lenders, leases with under 75 years become less and less attractive. On a more upbeat note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a property with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Wilford conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. A more straightforward and quicker method of extending would be to contact your landlord directly and sound him out on the prospect of extending the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

I purchased a garden flat in Wilford, conveyancing formalities finalised December 1999. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar flats in Wilford with over 90 years remaining are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease ends on 21st October 2095

With only 75 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
