    Long Leasehold - 2 x leases on the register


    I am trying to take on the remainder of a 100 year leasehold on a public house from administrators. I have recently learened that a 20 year period of the lease (2008-2028) is registered with another party at the land registry, although this person has no involvement with the pub. The propery has been let again since,although is now closed the locks have been changed and a caretaker is in operation.

    In a nutshell, the administrators are unwilling to give time to the problem and are unwilling to make the relevant case to the land registry to remove the old title, subsequently I sought an indemnity policy, which the administrators have agreed to cover, but insurance quotes have been five figure sums to underwrite the risk and administrators will not cover it.

    What is my correct course of action, given tkhat walking away is the worst case scenario?

    All help needed - Paulio

    I suggest ascertaining in whom the 20 year lease is vested and get him to sign a deed to the effect that he has abandoned the lease

      Is there a market for 1 beds in the village, you could convert and sell the flat leasehold, this could give you a lump sum up front. But if your looking at BTLs and there is a strong chance of letting the Upper for 4K + pa you won’t get a better yield than the conversion cost....

    • garage lease
      Hi All,

      What is the average ball park figure for a lease length for a garage in London. it has its own title deed. If the lease is around 20 years remaining. is it as simple as applying for a lease extension , or can the freeholder withhold?

      thank you

      After the lease ends the freeholder may not wish to extend it and if so it will become their property? if for arguments sake the lease is 20 years remaining (unsure what the average is for a garage) and I have yet to purchase the garage, is it best to agree on extension before purchase?

      You have no statutory rights here at all (it is not a residential property). So it is matter of asking for a price and agreeing that, if you get agreement, otherwise there is nil you can do. In 20 years it will case to be your lease controlled garage....

      I'm not concerned, but unfortunately other people are. And if I have a good answer to the questions I can head them off at the pass !...

      I wouldn't concern myself. If someone rents a place next to a gym, they would surely notice it when they viewed.
