If you are a qualifying leaseholder, with property in Harrow, you will have the right to claim an extension of your existing lease of an additional 90 years at a “peppercorn” rent (effectively rent free).
Your statutory right is contained in the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (as amended), and this legislation sets out the procedures which must be followed by a flat tenant to claim this right.
Here we explain briefly the procedures involved in exercising your statutory right to claim a lease extension.
Briefly, in order to compel a landlord to sell a lease extension, the building in question must be:
- A residential structure, not a commercial building.
- Outside the precinct of a cathedral.
- Not owned by a charitable housing trust, National Trust or the Crown.
And the flat tenant must have:
- A lease of more than 21 years when granted.
- Owned the lease for at least two years at the time of serving notice.
- Not be a business or commercial tenant.
More About Harrow, from Wikipedia, the free online encyclopaedia
Harrow Urban District was formed in 1934 as an urban district of Middlesex by the Middlesex Review Order 1934, as a merger of the former area of Harrow on the Hill Urban District, Hendon Rural District and Wealdstone Urban District. The local authority was Harrow Urban District Council.
The urban district gained the status of a municipal borough on 4 May 1954 and the urban district council became Harrow Borough Council. The 50th anniversary of the incorporation as a borough was celebrated in April 2004, which included a visit by Queen Elizabeth II.
In 1965 the municipal borough was abolished and its former area was transferred to Greater London from Middlesex under the London Government Act 1963 to form the London Borough of Harrow. It is the only London borough to replicate exactly the unchanged boundaries of a single former district. This was probably because its population was large enough. According to the 1961 census it had a population of 209,080, making it the largest local government district in Middlesex.
