Buying your freehold

If you live in a leasehold property you will have to pay annual ground rent to your landlord. Many leases also include restrictive clauses which mean that if you want to carry out certain alterations,  such as installing a satellite dish or building an extension, you may need to obtain the landlords written consent, usually incurring a consent fee.

If you own a leasehold property you may be able to purchase the freehold to your property, if certain criteria are met.

There are potential benefits to owning your freehold, including:

  • Not having to pay annual ground rent to your landlord
  • You will no longer have to apply for landlords consent to make certain changes to your property- giving you more control over what you can do with the property

Under certain circumstances, owners of flats can also get together to buy the freehold of their building. This is known as collective enfranchisement.

We can handle all the legal aspects of buying your freehold. Contact us for more information or to obtain a quote.

Transfer of equity

A transfer of equity is simply a transfer in share of a property. It often involves someone being removed from or added to the ownership of a property.

The most common reason for transferring equity is when a couple divorce or separate, and the property is transferred to a single party as part of the divorce settlement. Transfers of equity can also take place for a number of other reasons, such as marriage.

In all cases you will need an experienced lawyer to handle the legal work. Please contact us for more information or to obtain a quote.

Our Conveyancing Quote Policy - No Hidden Costs!

When shopping around for quotes, you will find that some firms quote a low price but leave essential elements out, to make their price look more attractive.

We will never disguise costs in this way; we will always give you an honest and inclusive quote.

When comparing quotes, always ask for a fully inclusive written quote to enable you to compare like for like. We will always offer you a quote in writing by email or post and we are confident that you will find our overall fees highly competitive.

Some examples of these hidden costs to look out for are:

  • Extra fees for leasehold properties (many properties in Sheffield are leasehold)
  • Fees for completing standard forms, for example the Stamp Duty Land Tax form
  • Standard expenses such as the Land Registry fee, which is always payable
  • Charges for dealing with mortgage lenders

Contact us for a quote, you will find our fees clear and competitive and our staff helpful and professional.
