Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be useful:

    What volume of lease extensions have they carried out in Prenton in the last year?

I bought a garden flat in Prenton, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding properties in Prenton with a long lease are worth £175,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2077

With just 58 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £23,800 and £27,400 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
