Foundation Surveyors are expert Lease Extension Surveyors and have represented both leaseholders and freeholders on transactions involving lease extensions as well as collective enfranchisement for numerous years.

Foundation Lease Extension Surveyors in London work independently on your behalf with full understanding of all pertinent legislation. We will explain everything to you in detail so that you have a complete understanding of the legislation and have full knowledge of your rights under the law. You can count on us to protect those rights at every stage of the process, whether you’re extending your lease or buying your freehold.

If you are a Freeholder and have received either a S13 or S42 Notice, or you are a leaseholder looking to serve an Initial Notice, you need expert advice to assist with the valuation. Whether you choose to go the informal or statutory route, we will do our utmost to ensure you get the best outcome. We’ve built a track record of successfully negotiating on behalf of many clients over the years regarding these matters, obtaining the best possible financial outcomes for them all. We invite you to contact us for a free initial consultation.

For our Lease Extension and Collective Enfranchisement we offer a Desktop or a Full Inspection valuation.

What makes us different from other Surveyors is the fact in addition to our opinion of the appropriate premium we will provide a range of figures that we could envisage being assessed by other valuers. This should give some idea of the negotiating range anticipated.

This means our report will include 3 valuations:

1. Low - Valuation to accompany the offer to the Freeholder. 

2. High - Valuation of the Freeholders likely counter-offer.

3. Medium - Valuation of the most likely agreed lease premium

Please try our easy-to-use lease extension calculator to get an initial idea of the likely cost of your Lease Extension. 

Further information regarding the Lease Extension process can be found here

Further information regarding the collective enfranchisement process can be found here.

Should you require, we would also be able to assist in negotiations with the freeholder or their surveyor.

Further, should the matter need to be referred to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal for determination, we would be able to provide expert witness evidence to the Tribunal.

I used Foundation for a Leasehold extension valuation report and negotiation. Foundation were very professional and competitively priced. They were able to work within tight deadlines too.
