Hi, just to say I am close to concluding a lease extension from Camden on my one bedroom flat through my own professionals (I had initiated this before Leasehold Solutions got in touch). The total cost including lease premium is £6,563.70. I started the process last year, with my survey taking place in January of this year. I have paid for my lawyer / surveyor, those for the Council, and disbursements. Touch wood, it has seemed fairly painless so far, if you are prepared to pay and be patient. The benefit is that you get a 90 year lease extension, so future proofing the property in terms of title.
