Top reasons for Eden Park lease extension

Why you should start your Eden Park lease extension today:

Increase your lease and increase your Eden Park property value

Eden Park leases on residential properties are gradually decreasing in value. The shorter the remaining lease term becomes, the less it is worth – and accordingly any extension of your lease becomes more expensive. Most owners of residential leasehold property in Eden Park enjoy rights under legislation to extend the terms of their leases. Where you are a leasehold owner in Eden Park you should see if your lease has between 70 and 90 years left. In particular once the remaining lease term slips under 80 years, the premium due on any lease extension increases dramatically as part of the premium you will incur is what is known as a marriage value

An extended lease is almost the same value as a freehold

It is generally considered that a property with in excess of one hundred years remaining is worth approximately the same as a freehold. Where an additional ninety years added to all but the shortest lease, the premises will be worth the same as a freehold for many years in the future.

Mortgage lenders will not lend with a short lease

Banks and building societies do not like short residential leases. You are likely to experience difficulties where you want to sell your flat in Eden Park if the remaining term of your lease is under the criteria set by the majority of banks and building societies. Different mortgage companies have different criteria but on the whole they are looking for an unexpired term of at least 65 years.

Eden Park Lease Extension Case Studies:

Lydia, Eden Park, South East London,

Trailing lengthy discussions with the landlord of her two bedroom flat in Eden Park, Lydia commenced the lease extension process as the eighty year threshold was swiftly approaching. The transaction was concluded in April 2007. The freeholder’s fees were restricted to less than 450 GBP.

Eden Park case:

Mr and Mrs. O Green moved into a ground floor flat in Eden Park in November 2011. We are asked if we could estimate the price would likely be to extend the lease by 90 years. Identical flats in Eden Park with 100 year plus lease were valued around £200,800. The mid-range ground rent payable was £65 billed annually. The lease elapsed in 2083. Given that there were 60 years as a residual term we calculated the compensation to the freeholder for the lease extension to be between £20,900 and £24,200 not including legals.
