Lease extensions – leaseholders and freeholders

Lease extension and shared ownership can be complex, but fear not as our team of experts are here to offer sound advice on your property. Extending a lease or buying the freehold has a value; this value inevitably lies with the freeholder. This means that the freeholder is entitled to what would be termed a fair market value for extending a leaseholder’s investment. This would also be the case if there were to be a sale of the freehold interest. As a leaseholder you are entitled to an extension of your lease.  Notice must be served first of your intentions should you be considering a lease extension or freehold purchase.

As with any property matter, it is important to consult a professional to ensure you protect your investment.
