Jason owned a studio flat in Swadlincote on the market with a lease of a few days over 59 years left. Jason on an informal basis contacted his landlord a well known London-based freehold company and enquired on a premium to extend the lease. The freeholder was prepared to agree an extension on non-statutory terms taking the lease to 125 years subject to a new rent initially set at £200 per annum and increase every twenty five years thereafter. Ordinarily, ground rent would not be due on a lease extension were Jason to exercise his statutory right. Jason procured expert legal guidance and secured satisfactory deal without resorting to tribunal and ending up with a market value flat.
