It is therefore very important to obtain a statutory lease extension before the number of years left to run falls below 80 years if a higher price to extend it is to be avoided.
If a lease has less than 80 years left to run, it is still just as important to obtain a lease extension, as the price payable only increases the shorter the lease becomes.
A lease extension will maintain or even enhance the value of a property. It can, in the event of a sale, increase the marketability and saleability of a property.
Mortgage finance has proved difficult in the recent economic climate with an increased number of mortgage lenders reluctant to provide mortgages on properties with shorter leases.
