Hello, my daughter is about to buy her first property and, unfortunately, due to property prices and mortgage availability, she will have to go leasehold, which is something we have no experience of.
We have heard a lot of horror stories of leaseholders being charged many thousands for unexpected improvement works done on the building, for example, window or roof replacements.
How common are these occurrences, and is there anything we can do to mitigate the risk? Is it better to avoid leasehold altogether for this reason?
