Your property will be either a leasehold or freehold property.

Freehold property

A freehold is where you own the property outright, meaning you are normally responsible for all the repairs and maintenance on the property itself.

Leasehold property

A leasehold property means you own the property for the length of time that the lease specifies and you have been given the right to live there during that specified time by the freeholder. Leases can vary, depending on how long they have been in existence for prior to you owning the property.

Lease Extensions on Flats

The conveyancing team at Sydney Mitchell can advise you on all aspects of residential leases on houses and flats, including advising you if you are buying and selling a leasehold property, acquiring the freehold of a property or extending the lease on your property. And, we are able to act for both tenants and landlords.

Commercial Lease Extensions

Our team also have experience of handling lease extensions of commercial property. If you are a business owner please read our commercial property pages under legal services for businesses

Why Extend your Lease with Sydney Mitchell?

We recommend you extend your lease before there are less than 80 years left to run, as generally the shorter the lease the less attractive your property will be should you come to sell and also the more expensive it would be to extend if you left it too late.

If you are looking at extending the lease on your property then you need a solicitor who can assist you. Our conveyancing team have experience in dealing with lease extensions, some more complicated than others.

We are able to represent residents, including resident associations, as well as property management companies.
