With many people spending more time at home during the coronavirus pandemic, they may be finding they have more time on their hands, and have started to research the costs of extending their lease. Indeed, in April this year, ALEP reported a 25% increase in website visitors looking for information regarding lease extensions.
With marriage value having a significant impact on the overall cost of extending a lease, it may be worth checking your existing lease and making enquiries as to the cost of extending your lease if it is nearing the 80 year mark.
