Mark Chick recently recorded a podcast with LEASE the Leasehold Advisory Service about how to buy the freehold of a long leasehold house under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967.
Links to this item appear below:
If you own your house under a long lease and have been the registered owner for at least two years, then it is very likely that you qualify for the right to purchase the freehold of your leasehold house. There has been some recent comment on long leasehold houses in the press, particularly in relation to new build developments. In particular see the article that appeared recently on the Daily Mail.
ALEP director Andrew Pridell commented in relation to this and Mark Chick provided some technical input.
