Extending your lease

If you live in a leasehold property which is coming towards the end of the leasehold period, and you aren’t looking to move properties, you will need to look at the options available to extending your lease. Luckily, you have come to the right place to answer any queries you might have.

Your Lease Extension questions answered

In short, the answer is yes. Whilst it would be tempting to negotiate the terms on your own to save costs, we strongly recommend against this.

The freeholder could for example add additional land charges or not increase the term as they should. If you choose a more formal route, your ground charges will be reduced to nothing and the term will be extended by 90 years.

Lastly, the formal route will offer legal protections and put in place timescales so you know where you stand and the freeholder can’t delay the process.

Extending your lease could take anywhere from 3 – 12 months to complete. Enlisting specialist lease extension solicitors and other professionals to assist will certainly help to move things along more quickly.

Quotes you get will vary, but be sure you are instructing a firm with the credentials to support you and your individual requirements. 

Lease extensions can be complex so you must ensure you are dealing with professionals that have significant experience in this area.

At Goughs we quote on a bespoke basis, so additional costs don’t sneak in further down the line. 

We will also offer you a dedicated lawyer so you have a point of contract throughout your transaction.

Lorraine Vaun-Davis

This is the third time Lindsey Nolan has acted for me. Each time I have found her to be highly professional, super responsive and detail orientated, which is exactly what you need during complex conveyancing transactions. She’s also great at managing unrealistic expectations, mainly mine! I have no hesitation in recommending Lindsey and the whole Gough’s Conveyancing team.

Kate Horner

Ailie was professional, friendly and very efficient. Ailie’s knowledge, reassurance and patience is invaluable.

Sue Jenkins

Nadine has been excellent throughout, keeping us regularly informed of all progress and we liked her very practical approach to things. The support staff at Goughs have also been excellent throughout, hence, instructing Goughs on 4 property matters. Nothing too much trouble and all requests were dealt with very swiftly


Well-managed transaction handled promptly and professionally. We have used Goughs before, will use again and would not hesitate to recommend
