You will be responsible for your landlord’s reasonable costs. This is limited to legal and valuation costs e.g. the landlord’s valuation, legal costs of drawing up the new lease and checking your right to make the claim for a lease extension.

You do not have to pay the landlord’s costs of going to a First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber).

Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
