Lease extensions

We all leave things till the last minute, but taking the time to extend your lease can help you avoid problems.

From Christmas cards to car insurance, we all leave things till the last minute. As long as the cards arrive in time for the big day all’s well. Leaving the car insurance till the last minute can cost money, because we don’t have time to look around for the best deal.

Why do I need to extend my lease?

It would be annoying to know that you could have saved a few pounds on your insurance if you’d looked around a bit sooner, but letting the length of your lease drop too low can seriously affect the value of your home. And the longer you leave it, the more it’s likely to cost you to extend your lease. Eighty years might seem like plenty of time, but once your lease drops below 80 years, it becomes a lot more expensive to extend it. So it’s not something you want to leave till the last minute. You’ll want to have someone who can help and advise you on all aspects of property law so that you can protect the value of your home.

That’s where we can help.
