What do you need to know about lease extension legal advice?
A leaseholder that has ‘owned’ a property for two years or more has a statutory right to extend their lease. This is a long, and sometimes complex, process, so getting legal advice before beginning can be a very wise move. A property solicitor or lawyer should be able to give you a fixed quote for advice sessions, and will talk you through your rights as leaseholder as well as whether you need to do additional preparation, such as organising a leasehold valuation survey. They will also be able to advise you if your landlord rejects your terms in their counter-notice and you are thus required to apply to the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to extend your lease. The cost of getting this kind of legal advice will vary considerably depending on your location in the UK. Have enough information to properly explain your situation to your options and get several free quotes to compare before making a decision. Make sure to take the time to look at the qualifications and experience of your options: law is a wide ranging subject, so your choice should have several years of experience dealing in property law. Feel free to ask them for reviews from their previous clientele, as well as whether they belong to any national organisations such as the Council for Licensed Conveyancers.
