I invested in buying a basement flat in Beaufort, conveyancing was carried out October 2001. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Beaufort with a long lease are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2104

With only 80 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
