Why Instruct A Lease Specialist Solicitor?
Depending on which way you want to extend your lease, either informal or formal, you will require the services of a specialist solicitor. What the specialist solicitor will have to do on your behalf will differ depending upon which way you decide to extend your lease.
The Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 outlines the process for formal lease extensions. The various deadlines in which your solicitors must follow are also dictated within this Act, missing one of these deadlines will result in you having to wait for 12 months before you can begin the process again.
Here at Direct Solicitors, our specialist team of solicitors can ensure they get the lowest possible lease extension premium for you from your Freeholder. As soon as your premium has been agreed, your appointed specialist solicitor will continue conduct by serving the Section 42 Notice, reviewing the new lease and then completing and registering the new lease on your behalf.
