How can I extend my lease in Southampton?
According to the The Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993, anyone who has owned a leasehold flat for at least 2 years is entitled to a Statutory Lease Extension of an additional 90 years without paying ground rent, granted they satisfy certain qualifying criteria.
We recommend that you don’t allow the time remaining on your lease to fall below 85 years, as some mortgage companies will refuse to lend against properties with a short lease, making them more difficult to sell.
Once the lease term falls below 80 years, the cost of extending your lease increases significantly, so it’s important that you take action to extend your lease before this point.
How can our lease extension solicitors in Southampton help?
Navigating a Statutory Lease Extension is incredibly complex and is best left in the hands of a capable leasehold enfranchisement expert. Your first step should, therefore, be to get in touch with a trusted lease extension solicitor to act on your behalf and ensure all documentation is processed correctly.
Our lease extension solicitors in Southampton can help you with every step of the process, including the drafting and submission of your Section 42 Notice and overseeing all negotiations to ensure that you get the best outcome.
