Residential Lease Extensions Solicitors

Are you a leaseholder or landlord facing the complex process of a lease extension? Look no further. Our expert legal team are able to deal with and advise on the entire lease extension process, for both statutory and voluntary lease extensions.

The statutory process can seem complicated, but we are here to guide you every step of the way, ensuring a smooth and successful lease extension. Here is a brief overview of what you can expect:

1. Eligibility Check: First, we will determine if the leaseholder is eligible for a lease extension. Typically, the leaseholder will need to have owned the leasehold property for at least two years.

2. Valuation: We will arrange for a professional valuation to determine the premium (price) for the lease extension. This assists in preparing for negotiations between the leaseholder and the landlord.

3. Initial Notice: The leaseholder will serve an initial notice to the landlord, formally requesting the lease extension. This notice will include the proposed premium based on the valuation.

4. Negotiation: The landlord has two months to respond with a counter-notice. We will then assist both parties in negotiating the terms to reach a fair agreement. If necessary, the First-tier Tribunal can be involved to resolve disputes.

5. Agreement and Drafting: Once terms are agreed, we will draft the lease extension agreement. This document will be reviewed and finalised by both parties.

6. Completion: Finally, we will handle the completion process, including the registration of the new lease with the Land Registry.
