    Lease extension

    Hi
    I'm thinking of buying a property at an auction with a lease of 8 years
    I have 3 questions:
    1. Is there an online calculator that i can use to estimate how much it will cost me to extend this lease?
    2. Under what lease term do mortgagees not lend?
    3. Would i need to own the property for 2 years before i seek an extension?
    Thank you

      At such low terms none of the online calculators will assist

      Most lender like to see 25-30 years left after the mortgage term has ended. There are a couple of lenders who will lend on short term leases on the major estates of London (i.e. the Grosvenor estate etc) but I would think 8 years is just too short

      Yes you would have to wait 2 years

        at risk of answering my own question, the leaseholder has to prove title which is a bit difficult if not registered........

        Does a leaseholder have to be a registered proprietor to join a collective? Or is it sufficient for her/his/it to be a transferee whose interest is not yet registered?

        It is relatively simple to administer process. However, definitely engage professional to define necessary work and project manage.

        If I can, anybody can.

        Hi. I have a freehold after selling a leasehold flat in a block of 4 flats. We don't currently have a managing agent, so these duties currently fall to me (I am holding off appointing a managing agent whilst the leaseholders consider whether they want to RTM).

        The block needs some maintenance...

        They are correct that the purchase of the freehold has no relevance (although it would allow the three of you to alter the leases if you are all in agreement).

        Unless you alter the leases you continue to split service charge costs according to what the terms of your leases say - sharing...

        In the process of buying freehold for our building. 9 participants (from 11 flats).

        Our solicitor will extend leases to 999 years for an additional fee if we want to. She has asked, as part of that extension process:

        If the leases are going to be for 999 years there is not a lot of point imposing a restriction in such terms. It is also open to interpretation. You have to decide first if you are going to allow subletting at all. That has to depend on what people want. If any owner already sublets then you cannot...

        ...And it still going to depend on what it is for (and on what your lease allows to be charged for, and when.

        Service charge demands have to include details such as a service address for the freeholder, and have to be accompanied by an appropriate copy of 'leaseholders rights and responsibilities',...
