Welcome to Leasehold Life, the long leasehold and subletting information site created by independent property manager Sharon Crossland AIRPM. Whilst the site is experience-based, Leasehold Life also contains specialist contributions by top industry professionals. Summarised leasehold case law is currently provided by Barrister Jonathan Upton of Tanfield Chambers.

Leasehold Life is very pleased to publish a follow-on article to some background content that Mark Chick, Director of ALEP provided to the Guardian on the 8th May 2014. Here he explains what happens next where a flat originally held on a long lease (99 or 125 years) is running down to the point where it will ‘expire’ – i.e. simply run out. 


Leasehold Life is very proud to publish this exclusive article by Mark Chick, MD of ALEP where he focuses on a key element of the valuation calculation used to work out the cost of extending a lease or purchasing the freehold, that of deferment rate. Mark also writes Leaseholdinfo.com and Leasehold Reform News.


Leasehold Life is very proud to publish this exclusive article from Mark Chick, property expert, specialist leasehold solicitor and a Partner at Bishop & Sewell LLP. He is also a Director of the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners, regularly writes and lectures on leasehold issues and has appeared on national television commenting on leasehold matters. The leaseholdinfo and the Leasehold Reform News websites are also written by Mark and here he addresses a lot of 'consumer concerns' arising when people want to buy a short lease flat and then need to serve notice.


This is an age old question that comes up regularly in the months after a leasehold purchase, when managing agents/landlord’s chase arrears, complete the annual service charge accounts and issue deficit invoices. Leasehold Life is very pleased to introduce new guest contributor Chris Alexander to explain further. Chris is a property litigation solicitor at SA Law LLP and also writes the Leasehold Lawyer Blog.
