Lease Extension Valuation, Wandsworth, London, SW18 

Our Chartered Surveyor and Valuer inspected a property in Wandsworth for lease extension purposes. The client had recently bought a flat with a short lease and had received an informal offer from the Freeholder. We advised the client on whether they should take the offer or ask their lease extension solicitors to serve a section 42 and go down the formal route.

Rafal from Websters helped to give me impartial advice with regards to a leasehold property. He is incredibly... knowledgable about all aspects of the property purchase process, including regulation, financial details and the estate agent side of things. Would definitely recommend and I will be using Websters again! 10/10read more

Richard Stacey provided excellent impartial advice for renovation and remodelling work on our home. Richard has saved... us significant building costs and has led to our living space being far more practical and future-proof than it would have been, had we continued with our original plans. His professionalism and knowledge is matched by his people skills and he instantly made us feel at ease. I would definitely recommend him, you wont be disappointed.read more

I contacted Webster’s surveyors regarding a property and from the first phone call to the last I found this company... efficient, polite and professional. They are very reasonably priced, they attended the property quickly and the report was also with me quickly. The report was thorough and very easy to understand, and has helped me greatly with the issues found, which will determine if I proceed or not, potentially saving me thousands of pounds.Cannot recommend enough.read more

We’re happy to work with others. Most of our clients find us through word of mouth, through referrals from other property professionals. We’re also happy to point you in the right direction if you need either a different kind of professional or even a different kind of surveyor. 

We believe that if we do a job, we should do it well and help in any way that we can. That can involve taking a strategic approach to the property advice we provide quite often. A good property professional is not just a technician, they’re a strategist and importantly, they’re able to understand client requirements. 

Whether you need a solicitor, surveyor, accountant, financial advisor, mortgage advisor, planner, architect or someone else, if we can help you find the right person to meet your requirements, we’ll do so. Quite often we’ll work closely with fellow property professionals. If we’re not involved though, if we can recommend you to someone who can help, we’re happy to do so.




lease extension and enfranchisement valuers


Over the years, as banks have become increasingly sensitive to diminishing leases, it has gradually become more difficult to secure mortgages on these types of properties. One risk to banks is lending on properties with unexpired lease terms of below 80 years, and therefore it is important to make sure your lease is over that length.

Leaving your lease to drop below 80 years could cause complications when trying to sell, buy or transfer a property and therefore it is paramount that it is dealt with before it gets to that stage.

At Websters Surveyors we undertake valuations to determine the likely costs of a lease extension. Extending your lease is governed by the Leasehold reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 and states that a qualifying tenant can extend their lease by 90 years and see the ground rent reduce to a peppercorn (effectively zero).

Alternatively, you can purchase your freehold with your neighbours and grant yourselves 999-year leases, however this is a slightly more complex process.

To find out about your options, speak to one of our lease extension specialists and Chartered Surveyors today. 




court reports



Valuing properties for court proceedings is undoubtedly one of the more interesting areas of Property Valuation practice that our team of Chartered Surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers undertake. 

For example, it is very common that when valuing a property in a Matrimonial assets division, one of the parties will be extolling it’s virtues to us trying to persuade us the value high whilst the other party does precisely the opposite. 

In providing a Market Valuation report that is compliant with the RICS Red Book, we have to take into account all of the factors that add or detract from value but we cannot be influenced by sentiment or by pressure. Our reports provide a completely balanced, independent opinion of Market Value, supported by the requisite market evidence. 

Some of our reports provide modern day values and some provide an opinion on a retrospective Market Valuation, particularly when being asked to comment on issues such as professional negligence of other Chartered Surveyors or sometimes ugly cases of abuse of trust where a property has been sold at an undervalue.
