Course Aims:

This podcast is aimed at property lawyers, particularly those interested in the extension of leases and the conversion of leases into freeholds. It aims to explore developments in 4 key areas: deferment rates, relativity, hope value and development value since the important House of Lords’ decision on valuation in enfranchisement cases in Sportelli in 2008.

After completing the course you will:
  • Know how Sportelli has been accepted for leases above and below the crucial 20 year term limit;
  • Understand how valuers have to value the existing lease in a hypothetical ’no Act’ world?;
  • Know to what extent relativity location sensitive and whether it changes over time;
  • Know what has happened as a result of the Sportelli decision in allowing hope value in collective claims;
  • Know whether and how development value applies to valuations of houses and lease extensions of single flats;
  • Know to what extent a tenant is entitled to a share of the development value.
