Owning a flat usually means owning a lease of the property, which has a set term of years. your lease will normally be granted for a set period of time , usually 99 or 125 years, although we have seen longer and shorter terms in Trelogan. Inevitably, the period of lease left reduces as time goes by. This is often overlooked and only becomes a problem when the flat or house has to be sold or refinanced. The fewer the years remaining the lower the value of the property and the more it will cost to extend the lease. Qualifying long lease owners in Trelogan have the right to extend the lease for a further ninety years in accordance with legislation. Do give due attention before putting off your Trelogan lease extension. Putting off that expense now simply increases the price you will eventually incur for a lease extension
It is generally considered that a residential leasehold with more than 100 years remaining is worth approximately the same as a freehold. Where an further ninety years added to any lease with more than 35 years remaining, the premises will be equivalent in value to a freehold for many years ahead.

Last Autumn we were e-mailed by Dr H Hernández , who owned a one bedroom flat in Trelogan in March 2007. The dilemma was if we could approximate the compensation to the landlord would likely be to extend the lease by a further 90 years. Comparative properties in Trelogan with 100 year plus lease were worth £183,600. The mid-range amount of ground rent was £65 collected yearly. The lease termination date was on 10 November 2078. Taking into account 57 years as a residual term we estimated the premium to the freeholder for the lease extension to be within £28,500 and £33,000 plus legals.
