Couple looking up the cost of a leasehold extension

Who can extend their lease?

So long as the following are true you have a statutory right to extend your lease:

  • you have owned your flat for over two years
  • your own 100% of your flat (i.e. not shared ownership)
  • your freeholder is not the Crown Estate or National Trust*
  • your lease was originally over 21 years long
  • you've not previously started this process in the last 12 months

If you meet the above criteria your freeholder cannot say no!

(*A few other charities are also in this position - please ask us)

Homehold can help you

  • if you own a flat or maisonette (not a house or commercial property)
  • if your lease currently has more than 60 years remaining
  • if your property is worth less than £500,000
