    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.

    Hi All,

    What is the average ball park figure for a lease length for a garage in London. it has its own title deed. If the lease is around 20 years remaining. is it as simple as applying for a lease extension , or can the freeholder withhold?

    thank you

    After the lease ends the freeholder may not wish to extend it and if so it will become their property? if for arguments sake the lease is 20 years remaining (unsure what the average is for a garage) and I have yet to purchase the garage, is it best to agree on extension before purchase?

    You have no statutory rights here at all (it is not a residential property). So it is matter of asking for a price and agreeing that, if you get agreement, otherwise there is nil you can do. In 20 years it will case to be your lease controlled garage....

    The business is a gym which uses music. We have the correct use class covering...

    I'm not concerned, but unfortunately other people are. And if I have a good answer to the questions I can head them off at the pass !...

    I wouldn't concern myself. If someone rents a place next to a gym, they would surely notice it when they viewed.

    We own an industrial unit occupied by tenants paying monthly rent under the terms of a nine year lease that expired four years ago. We need the premises ourselves and I understand we can apply to obtain vacant possession as we need the premises ourselves to run our property business from. We need to...

    If the existing nine years lease contains rent reviews then depending upon the wording of the review interval/frequency then it may be possible to review the rent without renewing the lease.

    If you've owned the property for at least 5 years then under LTA54 s30(1)(g) you could oppose renewal...
