Extending the lease prevents your property value from falling as the lease gets shorter and can remove an unsuitable ground rent. Either of which can make it difficult to sell.
Purchasing the freehold is another way to extend the lease and remove the ground rent as well as gaining control of the property.
If the lease is short or the ground rent unreasonable this can be dealt with by either extending the lease or purchasing the freehold under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967.
Most cases are dealt with through negotiations but if this is not successful either side can apply to the First Tier Tribunal (Property Division) for a decision.

Our clients praise us for our great results, personable service, expert knowledge and on-time delivery. Here are what just a few of them had to say:
I first used Alison Stone to extend a leasehold on a property in North London. This was 12 years ago. As a property portfolio landlord I would highly recommend Alison. She is both professional and efficient always maintaining the highest possible service. Alison is always available to give advice and has always been honest and sincere. She has now acted for me and other friends of mine over the past 12 year period. Quite frankly I would not use anyone else. Thank you Alison for all your professionalism and advice.
I’ve always found Alison to be an excellent professional with great experience. I like dealing with Alison for the consistently good advice, and because she is always available when needed.
