Extending the lease prevents your property value from falling as the lease gets shorter and can remove an unsuitable ground rent. Either of which can make it difficult to sell.
Purchasing the freehold is another way to extend the lease and remove the ground rent as well as gaining control of the property.
If the lease is short or the ground rent unreasonable this can be dealt with by either extending the lease or purchasing the freehold under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967.
Most cases are dealt with through negotiations but if this is not successful either side can apply to the First Tier Tribunal (Property Division) for a decision.

Our clients praise us for our great results, personable service, expert knowledge and on-time delivery. Here are what just a few of them had to say:
I first used Alison Stone to extend a leasehold on a property in North London. This was 12 years ago. As a property portfolio landlord I would highly recommend Alison. She is both professional and efficient always maintaining the highest possible service. Alison is always available to give advice and has always been honest and sincere. She has now acted for me and other friends of mine over the past 12 year period. Quite frankly I would not use anyone else. Thank you Alison for all your professionalism and advice.
I’ve always found Alison to be an excellent professional with great experience. I like dealing with Alison for the consistently good advice, and because she is always available when needed.
Urbanpoint Property Management Ltd have had a long and fruitful and productive, professional relationship with Alison over a number of years and she has acted in connection with many lease extensions & negotiations on behalf of Urbanpoint’s clients which have always concluded with amicable results and indeed compliments from other valuers commenting on her professionalism.
I chose Alison Stone to prepare a lease extension valuation, she was prompt, very professional and thorough. I wouldn’t have any hesitation is using her again or in recommending her to others. She replied quickly to all my emails and offered competitive prices.
Went above and beyond to get us a fair price on the purchase of our freehold. Alison's knowledge, experience and calm demeanour was reassuring during the process. Many thanks.
Leasehold extensions can be daunting and complicated if you don’t know what you are doing. The first thing you need to do is get a figure for an extension from your freeholder. The next thing you need to do is to contact Alison. She will value your property and advise you on the options. She will deliver this service at a more than reasonable price and will put you back in the driving seat. This is especially so, if you felt like me, totally out of your depth. Highly recommended.
Alison has been everything I needed and more in regards to extending my lease. Alison was able to do my survey quickly, professionally, for a great fee. She is very responsive and worked very hard on my case to help me come to a resolution to negotiate an informal lease agreement. I couldn't recommend Alison enough to anyone who has a house survey and lease extension need. Alison is hard working, knowledgeable and very personal to tailor her services to your needs and timescales. Alison has helped me for a year now and I wouldn't use anyone else from now on! Thank you Alison.
Felt that I really could sit back and let her do her job. Definitely worked hard and was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you so much for everything you did. I'm so happy the lease extension is now complete.
I was very happy with the service Alison provided she was prompt, professional and kept me updated. I would recommend her and use her again.
A very positive experience and I highly recommend her. A fast and professional service.
