Statutory Lease Extensions

Have you owned and been registered as the owner of your flat for at least two years? If so, you are a potential qualifying leaseholder under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (“the 1993 Act”). The 1993 Act enables a qualifying leaseholder to serve a notice, known as a section 42 notice, on their landlord to acquire a lease extension. In return for a premium, the leaseholder will obtain a 90-year lease extension in addition to the unexpired term of the lease, and the ground rent will become a peppercorn (i.e. nil).
