Lease Extension Pack
The Leasehold Reform Housing & Urban Development Act 1993 introduced the right of a leaseholder to apply for the extension of the term of his lease for an additional period of 90 years. This right applies where he has owned the property for at least 2 years and where the lease is a long lease, i.e. originally granted for a period of more than 21 years.
He makes an application under section 42 of the Act, wich he serves on the landlord. The application is usually made by a solicitor who will be required to verify particular information. The documents he will need to do this are the documents that we send you with this search.
