When you buy a leasehold property you are not really buying the bricks and mortar or the land on which the property sits; you are buying the right to inhabit the property for the term of the lease. Here we answer some of the most frequently asked questions about extending the lease on your leasehold property. Often, this may seem to amount to the same thing (where the lease is for 999 years, for example). But on properties which are getting closer to the end of their lease, the lender will need to take account of the affect of this on the future marketability of the property, and hence the effect on the property as security for a mortgage.

How do you keep on top of this when your priority is running a successful business, not learning the complexities of employment law?
