I am the registered owner of a leasehold flat in Hayling Island, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Hayling Island with over 90 years remaining are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2069

Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.

Neither should you move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
