Freehold Purchase and Sales

Freehold Purchase Solicitors & Freehold Sales Solicitors in Manchester, Blackburn & Lancashire

If you own a leasehold property and are looking for ways to increase the value of said property, purchasing the freehold, or extending the lease can be an effective way to increase the saleability of your property. In some cases, you may already own the freehold license on a property but are looking to sell this on to raise some working capital for another property project you are working on. 

Leasehold vs Freehold – What’s the Difference?

If you currently own a leasehold property, this means that you only own the property for the extent of your lease. Essentially, this means that the landlord of the property has permanent ownership, also known as ‘freehold’ over the land and building.

If you are currently in a leasehold agreement for your commercial property, you are restricted in what alterations you are able to make to a property. It’s also worth noting that when your leasehold agreement drops below 80 years, you’ll find that your property becomes extremely difficult to sell, and the value of said property will also drop significantly. However, purchasing a freehold agreement with your landlord can remedy this.

If you are looking to purchase or sell the freehold on a property, you should consult with a specialist commercial property solicitor as to the legal aspects of transferring a property from one party to another. This process can be complicated, so it’s well worth seeking legal guidance to ensure that your investment is sound.
