When your lease expires your flat reverts entirely to the Freeholder, with tenant rights to remain paying rent. This removes the ground rent and extends the lease by an additional 90 years. When proceeding informally without notices new legislation means it is illegal for freeholders to put in new ground rents. Offers made in notices that are not realistic can render the notice invalid. Which when purchasing may mean having to wait two years to qualify to re-serve a notice, increasing the premium payable in most cases.
A professional valuation is critical to ensure that tenants do not waste their time and money.

of the Issues
In most situations, once a lessee has owned their flat for two years, they are entitled to extend their lease under the
Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993, as amended by the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002.
This removes the ground rent and extends the lease by an additional 90 years.
The freeholder must be compensated for this loss and it is important that the valuation is carried out by an experienced
valuer to ensure the correct advice is given and the appropriate premium paid. Particularly where leases have dropped below
80 years as an added element known as marriage value makes the calculations more complicated and the premium paid higher.
An important point to take into consideration is that the Act also provides for the freeholders reasonable and appropriate
costs to be paid.
