Half a year ago Rory, came very close to the 80-year mark with the lease on his leasehold apartment in Trelogan. Having purchased his property twenty years ago, the length of the lease was of little significance. Thankfully, it dawned on him that he would imminently be paying an escalated premium for a lease extension. Rory extended the lease just under the wire last March. Rory and the freeholder via the managing agents eventually agreed on an amount of £5,000 . If he had missed the deadline, the figure would have gone up by a minimum £1,025.
