ECA Lease Extensions

Following an increasing number of requests, Cognatum Estates has introduced a standard lease extension policy for ECA residents. Most Cognatum properties are leasehold with no ground rents, the Beechcroft Trust ones generally running for 999 years and the English Courtyard for 150 years. For the latter there is obviously no immediate need to extend the lease as even the oldest estates are still under 40 years old, but it may be important to some ECA owners with an eye to maintaining the significance of their investment.

Further information about lease extensions is available from estate managers.
