Freehold maisonette above a shop - mortgage nightmare?

Dear Henry

As per Howard's response, you simply need to create a leasehold title for the maisonette and borrow against that - not the freehold. It is quite simple to do, you need to grant a long lease out of your freehold title - although you can't grant a lease to yourself, so you would need to grant the lease to a different person than the freeholder. So if you owned the freehold in your own name, you could grant the maisonette lease to yourself and your partner, or vice versa. Alternatively you could transfer the freehold into a limited company and grant the lease of the maisonette to yourself in your personal capacity.
Once you have done that, you should be able to borrow from most lenders.

Collective enfranchisement from a freeholder point of view


Normally the solicitor acting for the freeholder will obtain an undertaking to pay their costs from the leaseholder's solicitors. There should be no costs exposure for yourself. You should also get the leaseholders to pay your surveyor's costs so as to ensure that the proposed premium they have offered to pay is the best figure you can obtain.

We act for both freeholders and leaseholders on lease extensions and collective enfranchisements.
