Leasehold Extension - Getting Started
An outline of the right to extend the lease of a flat under the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993.
In the Section 42 notice you must specify a date for response of at least 2 months from the date of service of the notice. If your landlord does not respond or responds late then you can apply to the County Court for a lease extension on the terms set out in the Section 42 notice within 6 months from the date the counter-notice was supposed to be given.
Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
