I own a split level flat in Horncastle, conveyancing formalities finalised 7 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Equivalent flats in Horncastle with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2087

With just 63 years left to run the likely cost is going to range between £16,200 and £18,600 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

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