Leasehold Houses – Buying the freehold – Qualification and procedure
For buying the freehold of leasehold houses.
The length of the process varies depending on whether you use the Leasehold Reform Act 1967 or negotiate privately with your freeholder. By approaching the freeholder privately it may not take a great deal of time. Under the Act the process can take a considerable period of time. A period in excess of 12 months is not unusual.
Buying the freehold can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
