It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Winton concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Winton I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Winton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. 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 term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
My husband and I are new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent has warned us that the vendor will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's preferred solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’.

Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to instruct your own,trusted Winton conveyancing firm - as opposed tothe ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.
I would like to sublet my leasehold flat in Winton. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Is permission from the freeholder required?
Your lease governs relations between the landlord and you the leaseholder; specifically, it will say if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. The majority of leases in Winton do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the flat. In most cases there is simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.

The best form of lease structure is if the freehold reversion is owned by the leaseholders. In this arrangement the leaseholders benefit from control and notwithstanding that a managing agent is usually employed if the building is bigger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves. What is the name of the managing agents? Is the freehold reversion owned collectively by the tenants?
