Quiz - how well do you understand your lease?
Understand the key things you should know about your lease. If you are a purchaser, this can help make sure your solicitor has covered all of these points and explained them clearly to you.
When the lease is first granted the rent is generally calculated at 3% of the equity owned/retained by the landlord. For instance if the property is worth £100,000 and the share owned by the leaseholder is 50% the rent will be 3% of the remaining share held by the landlord being 3% of £50,000 which equals £1,500 per year or £125 per month. The lease will also provide that the rent will increase every year typically by a specified percentage above the upward movement of the Retail Price Index (RPI).
