Buying a Freehold
Most houses in the UK are known as ‘freehold’ properties. This essentially means that the owner legally owns both the house and the land. There are many benefits to buying a freehold property which can include:
- Not having to deal with the freeholder or landlord
- Not having to pay service charge or rent
- Not having to worry about your lease running out
We’ll be with you every step of the way and work had to make this experience enjoyable for you.

Buying a Leasehold
Leasehold properties generally refer to flats. The term may seem confusing but it essentially means that you are buying a property without the land. It is really important that you instruct an experienced Solicitor for your purchase to ensure that you make an informed decision.
You will need to know:
- Years left on the lease
- Service charges and other costs
As a leasehold tenant, you may be restricted in what alterations you make to the property. The property may also be significantly more difficult to sell as the time left on the lease get shorter. We will ensure that you are informed of all the necessary details regarding purchase of a leasehold property.
We offer a range of legal services and will cooperate with all our teams to make sure that we assist you with anything you need.
Keeping you informed

Buying a Property using Help To Buy ISA
Help to Buy is designed to help first time buyers save for a mortgage deposit. The Government will add 25% on top of what you save, which could mean that you get thousands extra.
You can open your Help to Buy ISA anytime until 30 November 2019 and will be able to save in it until 30 November 2029 as long as you are above the age 16. The definition for a first-time buyer is quite strict. The Government deem a first-time buyer as someone who doesn’t own and has never owned an interest in a property, inside or outside the UK.
The Help to Buy ISA bonus must be used towards the purchase price and cannot be used for any other purpose, including our fees. As the bonus is only available on completion this cannot be used towards the deposit.
