Increase the value of your assets

Properties with shorter leases are worth less than those with longer ones

Take advantage of a fairer mortgage

Shorter leases are difficult to mortgage due to decreasing value

Attract more buyers with a long lease

Buyers put off by inherited costs associated with extending a lease

Expertly navigate spiraling costs

Many of us buy homes with a lease of around 99 years and mentally note the cost of extending the terms increase each year. Just how quickly they accelerate can be sobering. By the time a lease reaches 60 years it can cost homeowners as much as 1% of their property’s value. Every year. We advise our clients to act well in advance, and not just to save money. Properties can become un-mortgageable at 68 years because mortgage companies will only lend on properties that have 25 years, plus the term of the mortgage left on a lease.
