Main reasons to start your Pinner lease extension

Main reasons to start your Pinner lease extension today:

Increase your lease and increase your Pinner property value

As the the remaining lease term of a Pinner domestic lease decreases so does its value and therefore the value of your property. If the lease has, beyond 125 years remaining then this decrease may be negligible that being said there will become a point in time when a lease has less than 80 years unexpired as part of the premium you will incur is what is termed as a marriage value. This could be significant. It is the main rational as to why you should extend the lease sooner than later. The majority of flat owners in Pinner will qualify for this right; nevertheless a conveyancing solicitor can confirm if you qualify for a lease extension. In certain situations you may not qualify, the most frequent reason being that you have not been the owner of the property for two years.

Pinner property with a lease extension has roughly the same value as a freehold

It is generally accepted that a property with in excess of 100 years unexpired lease term is worth approximately the equivalent as a freehold. Where an additional 90 years added to all but the shortest lease, the residence will be equivalent in value to a freehold for decades to come.

Banks and Building Societies will not issue a mortgage with a short lease

Mortgage companies will not grant a mortgage on short residential leases. You most probably experience difficulties where you want to sell your flat in Pinner if the unexpired term of your lease is below the criteria set by the majority of banks and building societies. Different mortgage companies have different requirements but on the whole theyrequire a minimum remaining lease term of 65 years.

Leeds Building Society 85 years remaing from the start of the mortgage.

Pinner Lease Extension Example Cases:

Logan, Pinner, North London

16 months ago Logan, came dangerously close to the 80-year threshold with the lease on his basement apartment in Pinner. Having purchased his home two decades ago, the unexpired term was of little significance. Luckily, he recognised he would imminently be paying an escalated premium for a lease extension. Logan arranged for a lease extension at the eleventh hour last September. Logan and the landlord eventually agreed on an amount of £5,000 . If he had missed the deadline, the premium would have become more exhorbitant by at least £1,125.

Pinner case:

Dr Ollie Richardson moved into a garden apartment in Pinner in January 1996. We are asked if we could shed any light on how much (roughly) compensation to the landlord would be for a 90 year lease extension. Similar flats in Pinner with a long lease were in the region of £265,000. The average ground rent payable was £50 billed per annum. The lease terminated on 11 September 2097. Having 74 years as a residual term we estimated the compensation to the freeholder for the lease extension to be within £9,500 and £11,000 exclusive of professional charges.
