We refuse to make any referral fee for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

    What are the charges for lease extension work?

I invested in buying a 2 bed flat in Calne, conveyancing was carried out April 2005. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Calne with over 90 years remaining are worth £181,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 charged once a year. The lease expires on 21st October 2069

With just 51 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £30,400 and £35,200 as well as 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 supply a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
