    How lease premium calculated?

    How is the lease premium is calculated?
    For example
    Rental Market £10000 per year
    Ground Lease £50 per year
    Lease term 98 years
    How would you determine the lease premium?

    A premium is the capital value of the profit rent. Using your example, assuming the 'rental market' is £10,000 pa for the whole of the lease term 98 years, the profit rent is £9,950 pa. The capital value is calculated on the yield that would be considered appropriate for the type of property, physical characteristics, terms and conditions of lease, etc. 98 years might be considered akin to freehold so if for example the appropriate yield were 10% then the premium would be £99,500, However, as it is a lease that amount of premium might not hold after about 28 years (all other factors remaining constant) because once a lease has >70 years unexpired it can start to become less valuable.

    Generally thinking premium would be better suited to a short lease. For example, the passing rent is £10,000 pa subject to review to market rent in 5 years' time. But the passing rent is too low because the market rent now is £15,000 pa. The premium value would be the capital value of £5000 pa for 5 years.

    The premium is for the benefit of the lease only, so goodwill is excluded, so too any tenant's fixtures and fittings. in some respect, the theoretical concept of a premium is outmoded. In places where demand for premises exceeds supply, buyers might pay a disproportionate amount simply to get in. Whether such buyers could recoup the amount paid when they themselves come to sell depends upon the state of the market at the time.

    It might also depend upon the source of finance. Generally, lenders want at least 7 years unexpired so a buyer having paid say £20,000 premium when the lease had 5 years remaining might not get their money back when the lease has only a couple of years left.

      Now that you have informed them, i'm surprised why you aren't paying them of the mistake? What type of agreement did you have with the council as I can't believe it would have been a verbal one with no paperwork. If it was a lease, most leases have a clause stating the rent is due regardless if it has...

      Regardless of any negotiations with the landlord for the renewal lease, if the tenant does not protect its renewal rights before the end date in the s25 notice then it would have no legal right to remain in occupation of the premises after that end date.

      There are two ways to protect the...

      "I had a clause added to the lease under the repairs section 'The tenant shall not be required to put the property in any better state or condition than it was at the time of this lease'."

      Was a Schedule of Condition prepared at the onset and affixed the lease? If so then you...

      I think it has to be the case that the landlord cannot hope to settle a dilapidations claim if he denies the tenant's surveyor access, but I have not been able to find confirmation of that online. I suggest you check the point with a surveyor.
