I own a 1st floor flat in Hilton, conveyancing was carried out in 2010. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable flats in Hilton with over 90 years remaining are worth £180,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2082

With just 59 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £20,900 and £24,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
