Little Ilford case:

In 2009 we were phoned by Mr and Mrs. H Flores who, having bought a newly refurbished apartment in Little Ilford in April 2012. The question was if we could approximate the premium would be for a 90 year extension to my lease. Similar homes in Little Ilford with an extended lease were in the region of £225,800. The average amount of ground rent was £60 invoiced annually. The lease ran out on 14 February 2081. Given that there were 60 years left we calculated the premium to the freeholder for the lease extension to be within £23,800 and £27,400 exclusive of fees.
