What is the value in paying for an expert in lease extensions?

No-one likes paying legal fees and of course it can be tempting to go for the cheapest option. In leasehold transactions this can be a false economy as it is one area where you need the right, and we think expert, legal partner on your side.


Firstly, because the extended lease will be a factor in your property’s future value and its mortgage-ability. It will also shape future obligations for ground rent and other potential payments. Secondly, because you need a solicitor who knows how to deal with the freeholder.
