What is a lease extension?

A lease extension is the process of increasing the duration of a lease agreement between the leaseholder and the freeholder beyond its original expiration date.

It’s important to note that leasehold ownership differs from freehold ownership. With freehold ownership, an individual owns the property outright and indefinitely, whereas leasehold ownership grants the right to use and occupy the property for a limited period, as stipulated in the lease agreement.

Over time a leasehold term shortens, those with less than 80 years remaining will require extending. This is known as a lease extension.

How long does a lease extension take?

In general, a straightforward lease extension can take several months to complete, typically ranging from a few months to six months or more. However, more complex cases or instances where there are disputes or negotiations involved may take longer.

The process usually involves gathering and reviewing documentation, conducting valuations if necessary, negotiating terms between the leaseholder and the landlord, and drafting and finalising the lease extension agreement.
