The leasehold reform Act gives leaseholders in certain circumstances the right
to extend their lease and purchase the freehold interests.

If you own a leasehold property with less than 100 years left on the current lease you may wish to consider extending it, as an extension of 90 years can be added to the term of the existing lease.

In such circumstances the Leaseholder has to pay a premium to the Freeholder for the extension of the lease. As the amount of the premium is not an arbitrary sum, this needs to be accurately assessed at the outset.

The leaseholder is also liable for the Freeholder’s valuation costs and his solicitor’s fees.

There is a parallel right, under certain circumstances, which enables a percentage of leaseholders in a building to purchase the freehold interest – this is known as Collective Enfranchisement.

As specialists in this field we advise both freeholders and leaseholders on the premiums payable and, if required, can negotiate on their behalf to secure an agreement at a mutually acceptable premium figure.

In a small number of cases it may not be possible to reach agreement with the other party and in such circumstances we represent our client at the First Tier Tribunal where a premium figure will be determined.

If you are considering buying or selling a freehold interest or extending an existing long lease, we will be pleased to answer any questions you may
have and provide you with a fee proposal for undertaking the appropriate valuation.
