Term of the lease

The term of a lease is the length of time a lease will run in total, from its commencement date onward.

The unexpired portion of the lease is the period from today’s date to the end of the lease.

If you have a short lease, then it is usually possible to negotiate with the landlord of a leasehold property to extend the term of the lease. This will involve making a payment to the landlord as well as paying the associated legal costs. This is not part of the normal conveyancing process and is not covered by the In-Deed Fixed Fee Gurantee.

If you think you may wish to do this, then speak to one of our conveyancers and they will be able to discuss the cost.

In-Deed. We make the legal side simple.
