About to purchase a new build flat in Willen. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Willen I like with open areas and station nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Willen for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

I inherited a 1st floor flat in Willen, conveyancing was carried out 10 years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding properties in Willen with an extended lease are worth £222,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2089

With 71 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
