A lease is your right to use a property for a specified period of time. As your lease gets shorter, the value of your property decreases and it can become difficult to mortgage or sell on. This is why it is a good idea to extend your lease.
Extending a lease by the statutory path or by negotiation can be a lengthy process so it pays to seek advice early. Both routes have their pros and cons whether you are a lease-holder or a free-holder so it pays to seek advice early.
