I am the registered owner of a leasehold flat in Poole, conveyancing having been completed August 2005. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding properties in Poole with a long lease are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease expires on 21st October 2091

You have 67 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £10,500 and £12,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should 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 clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
