    Does a lease extension create a new land registry entry?

    Can anybody tell me what happens to the existing record at the Land Registry when the term of a leasehold flat is extended. Does the Land Registry delete the present record and re-issue a new number, or is the existing record simply amended?

    And secondly,

    What happens to the Land Registry record when the leasehold term expires?

    1. Each HMLR title is specific to an estate or interest. A new lease needs a new title, so - on leasehold extension - the old title is closed and a new one is opened. Really, an "extension" is a surrender and re-grant (except, unusually, if the extension takes the form of a reversionary lease leaving the old lease in place).
    2. Hence, if the old lease is subject to a registered charge (=mortgage), the chargee/mortgagee needs to execute a Deed of Substituted Security before the old title can be closed.
    3. If a registered lease's term expires, the title continues to exist. Some leases are capable of continuing after term expiry (think AST with periodic continuation tenancy). The title can be closed on application (form AP1) with supporting evidence.
    4. The same is largely true of a lease that is as-yet unregistered and now expires (but application form would be CN1) or is extended.

      Good to hear an update.
      To clarify: you informed land registry your opinion is that the objection is groundless.
      did you also send my letter template to your neighbours?...

      I bought a property 3 years ago which was in AP of a small strip of unregistered land next to it since the 1960s.
      I recently applied for AP and all was going fine until recently an objection was received by a neighbour with a lot of spurious and false claims.
      The letter received is a B193(A)...

      Apologies for the delay.

      Wrote to the two objectors, twice, never heard anything back. One of the objectors tried threatening physical action, reported to Police, crime reference number obtained. Informed Land Registry that as they are not responding, it's best to go to tribunal.

      Hi,

      I have now heard back from the management agent who is also the secretary of the management company that, they were not the secretary at the time I became the owner and was not passed over details from previous agents.

      They asked me to fill in a membership application form...

      Hi All,

      Sorry if this question was already addressed previously.

      I hold a leasehold property back in years ago and I am now planning to sell my property.

      What comes to my mind is that when I have a look of the previous LPE1 / M&A there was mentioned a Membership...

    • Selling with tenant in situ - no EIRC
      by meehr
      Hi folks, slightly worried and looking for your view:

      I’m selling my old flat with tenant in situ, and just discovered that we have been non compliant since April on the EIRC - my earlier interpretation had been that we didn’t need to do an EIRC until a new tenancy.

      I...

      Your buyer needs to get their own EICR done before they buy

      I dont think you could be retrospectively prosecuted if you were no longer the owner when it came to light that there is no EICR. I would probably get an electrician in however, to inform me what it would cost to get up to standard. You don't want to give the hypothetical buyer reasons to doubt his/her...
