    Leasehold extension question


    I am a freeholder of a maisonette in S.London.

    I have been approached by the leaseholders of the property to try and extend the lease term so that they can sell. I have been trying to research the process and arrive at a figure of how much I should be asking. Can anyone help with a ball park estimate?

    The details are ....

    i. it has a 54 year lease with £14 pa ground rent

    ii. The tenant has been trying to sell the flat for 180k

    iii. with a healthy lease and refurbishment the property is worth in the region of 245k. Without the refurbishment probably around 220k.

    Many Thanks Chris

    Ball park figure would be £30k-£35k
