Equivalent properties in Herne Bay with an extended lease are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2078

With 56 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to range between £29,500 and £34,000 as well as 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 cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
