Buying the freehold: What's involved?

Thanks for all your responses. You are correct in that I will be the leaseholder and freeholder. I did wonder who I will pay the services charges and ground rent to. Will I pay myself?

I certainly don't want to spend my time in block management but it is only two flats in one house so not overly onerous. So maybe.

My main concern is the collecting the service charges and ground rent from the other leaseholder, and collecting it from myself, what do I do with it, where do I keep the money, how to do the accounts and so on. Setting up a company for two flats - is that needed/the best thing to do/feasible? Still waiting from my solicitor! Choosing an agent - is that a letting agent or another type of agent?
Many thanks for responses.... Read More

Council Tax Compensation for uninhabitable flat?

Council Tax Compensation for uninhabitable flat?

Hello and thank you for your reply. I have contacted the insurers and they only cover loss of rent. As both myself and the tenant are prohibited from occupying or entering the property, as it is uninhabitable, I'm not sure whether I am liable or not.... Read More
