South East Leaseholds
If you are buying a leasehold in the South East, then you need to note that is generally a more complex transaction. Finding a solicitor with experience in leasehold transactions is important, due to the extra intricacies. A good conveyancing solicitor will be able to guide you through the process, ensuring they check all of the following:
- Additional leasehold Fees – i.e. what you may owe to the freeholder. These fees are usually charged annually, and include your maintenance fees, ground rent and a share of the building insurance.
- The number of years remaining on the leasehold. A lease is a depreciating asset – that is, as the number of years left on the leasehold decreases, it may cause the property to also decrease in value. Mortgage lenders especially will want a at least a minimum number of years remaining
- Any restrictions on what you can do in terms of property development or renovations
There are other considerations when purchasing a leasehold property. To find out more on the benefits and downfalls of leasehold properties, you can take a read through our leasehold and freehold advice page.
