Extending a lease

Extending a lease. Sounds simple, right? But in recent years the burgeoning letting business has been affected by a whole series of changes in the law. What was once relatively routine has developed into something pretty specialised. So whether you’re a tenant or a landlord, you can look to us for the expert help and advice you need.

For example, tenants are entitled to a statutory lease extension of ninety years as long as certain conditions have been met. If you’re a tenant, we can advise you how best to make sure that they are. If you’re a landlord, we can help you avoid the difficulties that can sometimes slow things down.

When a lease extension is granted, a premium is payable. It’s arrived at by using a technical calculation. We’ll work closely with chartered surveyors to make sure that it’s fair in the circumstances.

We’ll never keep you in the dark. Through every stage of the lease extension process, we’ll make sure that you’re right up-to-date with what’s going on.
