I acquired a split level flat in Ampthill, conveyancing having been completed September 1999. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent properties in Ampthill with an extended lease are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2072

With 50 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
