One of the key areas our residential conveyancing team are now involved in is lease extensions. As a residential leaseholder you may have the statutory right to extend the lease on your property, however this has to be done within a legal framework.
Your lawyer can assess your eligibility, explain the processes and advise on the benefits and costs. Should you wish to proceed, we will arrange valuations, serve any statutory notices and even negotiate with the freeholder (landlord) on your behalf, if needed.
Because the terms of a lease extension have to reflect those of the original lease - which in most cases are ‘bespoke’ to the landlord/property – there is rarely an ‘off the shelf’ solution so each has to be drafted accordingly. The experience of our team, however, means that this can be done smoothly and cost-effectively, whilst we of course provide clients with a fee estimate before any costs are incurred.
In almost all cases we are able to negotiate a satisfactory conclusion without going to a Leasehold Valuation Tribunal (LVT), however should this be necessary we will act on your behalf to support your claim.
