Main reasons to start your Swanland lease extension


Why you should commence your Swanland lease extension today:

Increase your lease and increase your Swanland property value

The market value of Swanland leasehold residential property falls as the lease term becomes shorter and this will have an impact on its saleability. The expense of a lease extension can escalate significantly once the unexpired lease term is less than 80 years

An extended lease is almost the same value as a freehold

It is generally accepted that a property with in excess of 100 years unexpired lease term is worth approximately the equivalent as a freehold. Where an further ninety years added to any lease with more than 35 years unexpired, the premises will be equivalent in value to a freehold for decades to come.

Lenders may decide not to loan monies with a short lease

Mortgage lenders have specific criteria when lending funds secured on leasehold homes. Some will simply refuse lend at all once the residual lease term slips under a certain unexpired lease term. Many Lending institutions will not regard property with a remaining term of less than seventy years suitable security. As well as this being important when selling, it is also relevant where you are seeking to refinance your Swanland home.

Swanland Lease Extension Example Cases:

Natasha, Swanland, East Yorkshire,

After protracted correspondence with the freeholder of her basement apartment in Swanland, Natasha started the lease extension process as the eighty year deadline was quickly nearing. The legal work completed in July 2015. The landlord’s charges were restricted to less than 500 GBP.

Swanland case:

Last Summer we were contacted by Ms Isabel Gómez , who bought a studio apartment in Swanland in July 2004. We are asked if we could estimate the premium would likely be for a 90 year lease extension. Comparable properties in Swanland with an extended lease were worth £205,000. The average amount of ground rent was £50 invoiced yearly. The lease terminated on 24 October 2102. Taking into account 78 years outstanding we approximated the premium to the freeholder for the lease extension to be between £7,600 and £8,800 plus professional charges.

Swanland case:

Mr and Mrs. E Miller bought a ground floor flat in Swanland in January 2011. We are asked if we could shed any light on how much (roughly) compensation to the landlord would likely be to prolong the lease by 90 years. Comparable homes in Swanland with an extended lease were in the region of £267,600. The average ground rent payable was £65 invoiced annually. The lease ended on 9 March 2091. Taking into account 67 years outstanding we calculated the premium to the landlord for the lease extension to be within £14,300 and £16,400 plus fees.
