This free platform provides estate agents with an online ‘go to’ facility to help estimate the potential premium of a lease extension on behalf of their clients with ‘short’ lease flats.
In the complex world of leasehold, trying to establish the likely cost of a lease extension can be difficult and the leap online calculator is an excellent starting point to estimate an initial ballpark figure.
The lease extension process must not commence without first seeking formal professional advice from a specialist valuer (and a specialist solicitor). If you or any of your clients wish to take action to extend a lease or purchase a freehold, then please contact Leasehold Valuers.
