From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title.

I bought a studio flat in Cotham, conveyancing was carried out 9 years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable properties in Cotham with an extended lease are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease terminates on 21st October 2090

With just 68 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
