Leases & Extensions
Practice Area Specialist:
Mark heads up our Lease Extensions and Enfranchisement team acting for tenants who are extending their leases or grouping together to buy their freehold as well as for landlords.
Mark also acts for GP practices and for dentists who are buying and selling practices. He has a wealth of experience of all aspects of commercial property work and assists both private individuals and companies whether they are buying, selling or leasing commercial property.
The lease of your flat gets shorter every year. As a result of this, a lease is a wasting asset and if you let the length of your lease drop too low, there is a danger that it can seriously reduce the value of your property. If it becomes lower than 80 years, it could become difficult to sell or re-mortgage your flat.
Stillwells are specialist lease extension solicitors, able to guide you through the process using plain English. All of our services are undertaken by a partner and for a fixed fee, which means the process is often shorter due to our familiarity in this area whilst offering excellent value for money.
Stillwells is proud to be a member of the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners (ALEP), which gives testament to our consistently high level of service, integrity and professionalism.
Whether you are a property owner needing assistance with lease extensions, a seller wishing to serve notice on your landlord or a buyer looking to purchase a leasehold property, Stillwells offers a range of bespoke services to help. We also have significant experience dealing with Residents’ Associations and are able to advise on a number of issues relating to leases. The longer you leave it to extend your lease, the more it could cost you.
