If you are a leasehold flat owner and have owned your property for over 2 years you are entitled to extend your lease by 90 years (i.e. on top of your existing term) and to extinguish your ground rent.
If there are less than 85 years remaining on your lease it is advisable to extend at the earliest opportunity before the cost of extending rises. At under 80 years, the premium will then include marriage value which will increase the premium.
If you are concerned about your lease or are interested in extending we can offer you clear and professional specialist advice. Please contact our leasehold department for a free preliminary consultation on 01273 20 19 80 (opt 2). Alternatively please complete the form on this page and we will respond within 24 hours.
