Your Rights

legal entitlements

Knowing what you are entitled to is important. Your rights as a Leaseholder / Lessee / Flat
Owner are explained.

Extending a Lease

To qualify, the lease must have an original term of at least 21 years. The Leaseholder must have owned the property for at least 2 years. The new lease will be for a term of 90 years – in addition to the current unexpired term. Once extended, the rent, under the new lease, will be at a peppercorn (effectively, nil). Service charges will remain unaltered.

Collective Purchase of a Freehold

To qualify, each participating Leaseholder must own a lease which had an original term of at least 21 years. No less than 50% of the Leaseholders of all the flats in the building must participate. There are a few additional requirements, but the above are the main prerequisites. If you are unsure if you qualify, please contact us today for a consultation and one of our team will be able to help.
