Lease Extension

There are a large number of properties that have been built and sold on a leasehold basis as opposed to freehold or commonhold. This is a common occurrence with flats. A leasehold property allows you to buy the rights to live in a property, for a set period of time. This is often between 99 to 125 years. Leasehold houses, on the other hand, will tend to be for 999 years. Our lease extension solicitors can assist you with extending the lease on your flat or house.

As the length of the lease decreases, the cost of extending rises. Additionally, the freeholder is entitled to a share of the increase in the value of the flat should the lease be extended.

The price of such an extension can vary. The price payable is calculated in accordance with a statutory formula but is commonly negotiated using the formula as a guide. Whilst there is no requirement to have a formal valuation, this is usually advisable as having a detailed valuation carried out by an expert surveyor enables you to negotiate with certainty.
