Top reasons for Padstow lease extension


Why you should start your Padstow lease extension today:

Increase your lease and increase your Padstow property value

On the balance of probabilities where you own a flat in Padstow you actually own a long leasehold interest over your property

Padstow property with a lease extension is almost the same value as a freehold

It is conventional wisdom that a residential leasehold with over one hundred years remaining is worth approximately the same as a freehold. Where an additional ninety years added to any lease with more than 30 years remaining, the premises will be equivalent in value to a freehold for decades to come.

Mortgage lenders may decide not to finance a property with a short lease

Lending institutions are less likely to give a loan offer on a residential flat in Padstow with a short lease. Some lenders simply refuse to lend on leases with less than 75 years left.

Padstow Lease Extension Case Summaries:

Jodie, Padstow, Cornwall,

Trailing lengthy negotiations with the freeholder of her basement apartment in Padstow, Jodie commenced the lease extension process just as the lease was approaching the critical 80-year deadline. The legal work completed in March 2013. The landlord’s charges were restricted to approximately 450 GBP.

Padstow case:

Last month we were called by Mr Sam David , who moved into a first floor flat in Padstow in July 2006. The dilemma was if we could estimate the compensation to the landlord would likely be to prolong the lease by ninety years. Identical residencies in Padstow with a long lease were valued about £233,200. The mid-range amount of ground rent was £60 billed per annum. The lease expired on 11 October 2083. Given that there were 61 years remaining we calculated the compensation to the landlord to extend the lease to be between £22,800 and £26,400 not including professional charges.

Padstow case:

Last month we were contacted by Ms Georgina Petit , who was assigned a lease of a studio apartment in Padstow in July 1996. The question was if we could approximate the compensation to the landlord would likely be to extend the lease by a further 90 years. Comparative premises in Padstow with 100 year plus lease were in the region of £166,800. The average amount of ground rent was £50 invoiced monthly. The lease ran out on 7 August 2072. Given that there were 50 years remaining we calculated the premium to the freeholder for the lease extension to be between £32,300 and £37,400 plus fees.
