Given that your lender is Lloyds your lawyer must check the formal instructions outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Lloyds.

I acquired a leasehold flat in Oldland, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Oldland with over 90 years remaining are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2104

With 80 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £7,600 and £8,800 as well as 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 the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
