Does increasing Ground Rent increase the valuation?

I strongly advise that you seek expert legal advice asap! If you go alone, you risk missing a deadline or other technical requirement and your position may become hopeless.
I used ODT Solicitors based in Brighton when I extended a flat lease. The freeholder used her family Solicitors who didn't know their way round this very technical procedure, got it wrong and I got my extension on the terms we offered. They were worth every penny of their fees.... Read More

Please be guided and stay safe!... Read More

Surprised by low offer from leaseholder?

Depending on where you are, I recommend ODT LLP Solicitors in Brighton. They acted for me as a leaseholder when I also extended a short (I think about 60 years?) lease. Well worth the fees, as the other side were useless and missed deadlines. ODT knew exactly what they were doing, as did the surveyors.... Read More
