If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you.

I am a negotiator for a long established estate agency in Pevensey Bay where we have experienced a few flat sales jeopardised due to short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Pevensey Bay conveyancing solicitors. Could you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can start the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

I own a split level flat in Pevensey Bay, conveyancing having been completed in 1995. 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? Comparable flats in Pevensey Bay with over 90 years remaining are worth £190,000. The ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2081

You have 62 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £17,100 and £19,800 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
