Extending your lease

Extending your lease

In certain circumstances you might be able to extend the lease of your property for an additional 90 years.

There is a formal procedure that you must follow to extend your lease which you will need a solicitor to complete for you and starts with them serving a notice on Newcastle City Council.

There will be a cost for extending your lease and you would also be required to pay the Council’s fees.

We recommend that you seek independent profession advise in relation to the process including checking eligibility, assessment of purchase price and preparation and service of notice.
