If you are instructing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Pitsea conveyancing practice) it is essential that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work.

The following questions might be useful:

    How many lease extensions have they completed in Pitsea in the last year? How familiar is the firm with lease extension legislation?

With 52 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £29,500 and £34,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.
