Assuming you are a qualifying tenant in all other respects, you have the right to extend your lease once you have been the registered owner of the flat for two years. You do not have to have lived there, just owned it.
Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
