Have I been scammed into Leasehold?

What were your plans with this property, to live or or ret?
You need to wait 2 years before you can buy the freehold - (the best option) or extend the lease (2nd option but will be able to reduce the ground rent to a peppercorn) So I'd suggest you refurb asap, let it, start earning money, & in 2 years you'll be able to take action. Hopefully in that time, the ground rent issues that the government is currently limiting to new builds will roll our to private freeholders too. Unfortunately you have learnt the hard way how auctions work.... Read More

I signed up & accessed the pack, I can see the freeholder is the council, no MA info, did you get paperwork other than what is available online?... Read More

Exactly, like I said that’s why it’s at auction-cash buyers only, banks won’t mortgage it these days unless that ground rent is amended & I’m guessing the freeloader sorry freeholder is enjoying the income. I presume it’s not on an estate therefore you can possibly buy the freehold but it will not be cheap. You’d need a solicitor who is very good at leasehold - I’d suggest you learn as much as you can about leasehold pitfalls first so that you can ask the right questions, as the experience of many leaseholders is that many solicitors THINK they know leasehold & end up giving bad advice. “You don’t know until you know” Join the national leasehold campaign website / Facebook page & leasehold knowledge partnership site too. Ask lots of questions.... Read More

Are you seriously disputing what I’ve said about ground rent of £1k, based on your £12??
Never mind apples & oranges, you’re comparing apples & chairs!! Do yourself a favour & research “onerous ground rent”... Read More
