Sheffield , once a comparatively run-down former mining area and heavy industrial hub, has boomed in recent years to become a metropolitan hub of culture, industry and total regeneration.
This former steel city has seen its gross value added (GVA) grow by 60% since 1997, adding £9.2 billion into the British economy just ten years later in 2007. Its economy is growing at a rate of 5% a year, which is more than the whole of the Yorkshire and Humber region. It’s easy to see, then, why so many people are flocking to live in Sheffield.
With freehold properties being at a premium due to the successful regeneration, many people are opting to buy a leasehold flat.
If you own the leasehold on a flat, the chances are that you need to renew your lease or will need to do so soon. If you live in Sheffield and are looking to start the lease extension process, our dedicated team of experts would be happy to help.
LEASE EXTENSION – THE IMPORTANCE OF INSTRUCTING AN EXPERT
The importance of instructing a specialist lease extension solicitor to manage the lease extension process is often underestimated. Some of the reasons for instructing an expert are listed below:
• Experts will understand the complicated legal terminology involved in lease extensions and the importance of meeting the strict deadlines involved
• Your landlord is likely to instruct their own specialist solicitor so you owe it to yourself to get one as well
• Our expert solicitors have the negotiating skills you need, and a panel of specialist local surveyors, which you are going to need for a proper valuation of the premium to be paid to your freeholder
• If your landlord attempts to stall negotiations so that the extension costs you more, an expert solicitor will be able to help you apply to the First-Tier Property Tribunal (previously known as Leasehold Valuation Tribunal).
