Leasehold Houses

Unfortunately, far too many houses have been sold on a leasehold basis without buyers truly understanding the implications. Many of these not suffer from onerous ground rents and restrictive covenants making them near on impossible to sell at true market value.

Relief however can be found within the Leasehold Reform Act 1967 (‘the Act’) which provides qualifying lessees of houses with the right to acquire on fair terms the freehold of their house and premises.

In order to qualify these criteria must be met:

The lessee must be the lessee of the whole house

Original lease length must exceed 21 years

Minimum house ownership of 2 years
