When should I extend my flat’s lease?

Deciding when to extend the lease on your flat can depend on a number of factors, including the current length of the lease, the value of the property, and your future plans for the property. Here are some things to consider:

  1. Lease length: Generally, it’s a good idea to extend your lease when it has less than 80 years remaining. This is because the cost of extending the lease increases significantly once it drops below 80 years, due to the way that the calculation is made.
  2. Property value: Extending the lease can increase the value of your property, so it’s worth considering the potential return on investment when deciding whether to extend the lease.
  3. Future plans: If you plan to sell the property in the near future, extending the lease may make it more attractive to buyers. On the other hand, if you plan to keep the property for a long time, extending the lease may not be as urgent.
  4. Costs: Extending the lease can be expensive, so it’s important to consider the costs involved and whether you can afford them. You may also need to factor in the costs of professional advice, such as a surveyor or solicitor.
  5. Negotiation: If you decide to extend your lease, you will need to negotiate with your freeholder. It’s important to understand your legal rights and seek professional advice to ensure you get a fair deal.

Ultimately, the decision of when to extend your flat’s lease will depend on your individual circumstances. It’s important to consider all the factors involved and seek professional advice to help you make an informed decision.
