Our client (Ms. L T) owns a flat with 69 years remaining on her lease. Her Freeholders indicated that they would be looking for a premium of between £20,250 - £27,000, with ground rent increasing to £300 p.a., to extend her lease by 55 years. We were able to agree a figure of £9,500, at zero ground rent, and secured an extension of 90 years.
Our client (Mr. C I) is the leaseholder of a flat whose freeholder is a professional landlord with great experiece of leasehold enfranchisement.

The freeholder had indicated that my client could expect his lease extension to cost at least £9,000 (including expenses). We were able to negotiate a premium of £6,500 with expenses limited to £750.
Contacting Lease-Increase because she had previously found her freeholder "difficult", our client (Ms. J H) asked us to value and then negotiate her lease extension.
