How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business property in Silsoe and how can you help?

The 1954 Act provides a safeguard to commercial tenants, granting the a statutory right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Silsoe is one of the hundreds of locations in which our lawyers have offices

We own a leasehold flat in Silsoe. Conveyancing was finished in five years ago. I have heard that I mustn’t let the the remaining lease term to get too short. Why is that a problem?

Silsoe residential long term leases are for a set period - often just under one hundred years when they commenced. However many flats in Silsoe were built or converted 25 or more years ago and so these leases now have fewer than eighty years unexpired. That may seem like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage companies generally need leases to have at least 75 years left to adequate security. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are getting close to seventy five years. To enhance your property value you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. Please note that there are advantages to taking action before the lease reaches even 80 years as when the lease falls below eighty years the amount you have to pay to extend starts to escalate.
