Extending my lease

Leaseholders who have owned their home for at least two years have a right to a new lease. This would normally be granted for 90 years plus the present term still left to run.

Brent Council is unable to provide an estimate of how much the lease extension will cost, this can only be determined once the valuation has been carried out.

You may be required to serve Brent Council with a legal notice. You should seek independent legal advice on this matter. 
You will be responsible to pay our legal and valuer's fees of approximately £1,800 plus VAT and your own legal fees.

Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and or a surveyor with experience in this area. You can also approach the Leasehold Advisory Service which provides free advice on the law affecting residential leasehold property in England and Wales.
