If you’ve owned your property for more than two years. If the original lease was for more than 21 years and the Freeholder is not a Charitable Housing Trust, the National Trust or The Crown then yes, congratulations, you qualify for a lease extension.
HI, I'm Joe Arnold from Arnold & Baldwin Chartered Surveyors. So you'd like to know whether you qualify for an extension? Well, if you've owned your property for more than two years, the original lease was for more than 21 years, and the freeholder is not a charitable housing trust, the National Trust, or the crown, then yes, congratulations you do qualify and you're on the road to taking control of your lease extension. If you don't meet that criteria, please don't panic, as we've successfully negotiated lease extensions along the informal routes, on many of occasions, however you will need to speak directly with one of our experts.
