    Lease Exention

    Hi all,
    I have 2 lease hold BTLs,

    Flat 1 has 80 years remaining and is valued at £100k, 23 years left to run on mortgage
    Flat 2 has 76 years remaining and is valued at £75k, also 23 years to run on loan

    HAs anyone a view on how much a lease extention would cost on the above

    Many Thanks

    The procedure and valuation of statutory lease extension can be obtained from free download of publications at

    You can calculated the rough cost using the method posted in LZforum thread no. 11080 by our expert sgclacy.

    The cost of lease extension increases for those leases falling below 80 years remaining term so you had better get ready to start on your flat 1 if you have the finances.

      It states RMC will keep the building insured as directed. The Freeholder directs. RMC does as directed.

      I am a Director of an RMC and the Freeholder insists it is their right to arrange the insurance. Have I the same right as an RTM to take over the arrangement of insurance?

      Thank you for the replies. The RMC (not an RTM) was setup by the builders when the property was built so has always been in existence (since 1980). The insurance has always been arranged by the Freeholder and paid for by the RMC. The lease states that the RMC will keep the buildings insured as directed...

      Hi, I hope I can write this in a clear way that makes sense!

      We bought a leaseholders flat in 2016, the next year we bought the limited company that held the freehold. This was done as no other leaseholder were interested in buying the freehold a few months prior to us buying our leasehold...

      The company accounts shows the share capital at £2, it was holding the property on behalf of you ( beneficiary ) .

      Since you have received £14K and £12K from disposal = £26K , your capital gain will be £26K - £18K = £8K .

      You are entitle to the annual cgt allowance...

      I am the owner/occupier of a leasehold first floor flat in a converted property consisting of two flats. The freeholder owns and is the occupier of the ground floor leasehold flat. There is a passageway/right of way from the road along the side of the building to my ground floor front door entrance....

      Absolutely not! Both the right and covenant are clear. Ask the freeholder why he considers he should not be bound by the terms of the lease. If he insists he is not bound, suggest that in that case you are not bound by the terms of your lease either....

      They are the accountants that the managing agents use. We have literally left it all up to them and have been hands off (unless there were issues with stuff that need authorising by us). Our managing agents are also company secretaries for the Ltd company that we own.

      divadee, you mention the company accountant in the first post but then mention that you were relying on your managing agents. Are they one and the same?

      Where did the £14k paid for the lease extension go?
