Lease Extension London

TESTIMONIALS

“I contacted Charles Tellerman of Tellerman & Co to negotiate my lease extension, having been recommended by a neighbour. I had been disappointed by a larger firm specializing in lease extensions: they were slow to respond to my queries and had suggested an offer price higher than I thought reasonable. Charles Tellerman replied to my enquiry immediately, and he prepared a detailed valuation report with far more evidence than the larger firm. With his in-depth knowledge of my local area he successfully negotiated a final price considerably lower than even the lowest range indicated by the larger firm. Although the larger firm talked about "economies of scale" this was a false economy. Charles Tellerman was able to consider my particular case individually and everything moved fast as we did not need to wait for other flats in a consortium. My lease extension was successfully completed and Charles Tellerman was excellent from start to finish.”

“I have used Charles Tellerman on two separate occasions for lease extensions. In both cases the relevant freeholder was institutional and considered difficult to deal with and it was clear from the start that I would need professional advice. On both occasions the final price Charles agreed with the freeholders valuers was the price he had advised as being the likely premium. His understanding of the Lease Reform Act is forensic and his knowledge of the local (South Kensington) property market is huge. He is also, it would appear, a very tough negotiator. Although not cheap, Charles Tellerman's overall service package from taking on a valuation on behalf of a client and then negotiating with the freeholder's valuer is excellent and I would thoroughly recommend his services for anyone embarking on lease extension, especially when the relevant freeholders are institutional bodies.”

"Charles was extremely patient explaining the principles of valuing lease extensions and how he arrived at his recommendation which was very close to the final sum agreed. I was very much impressed by the fact that he had attended the hearing of a significant case relating to the valuation of lease extensions and predicted with considerable accuracy the final judgement. I was even more impressed when he found a paragraph in the decision which seemed to suggest that our settlement was to be determined under the practice predating the decision which was very much to our advantage.”

“I have hired the services of Charles Tellerman when I acquired a short lease property in Cadogan Gardens in London. During the assignment, Charles has done an excellent job valuing the lease extension, connecting with the freeholders and their advisors, negotiating a mutually acceptable price and then finally securing the lease extension within the notice period. Charles was communicative, transparent and professional throughout and I won’t hesitate to use his services again”

"When I took Charles Tellerman on to assist me with my rather complicated lease extension I was quite unsure about the whole process - it was the first time I had entered into this world, and it was with some trepidation. Charles took complete control and wrapped up the whole transaction at a very reasonable cost. He was diligent, efficient, clever, realistic and honest and a complete pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.”
