Leasehold means having an agreement with a landlord specifying how many years you’ll own your property before ownership returns to the landlord.
If you have a leasehold property with less than 80 years remaining, extending the period of your lease is likely to increase the value of your property and make it easier to sell.
Our team can guide you through both individual lease extensions and collective enfranchisement, where homeowners sharing the same building join together to buy the freehold of their building.
Transferring ownership of your property
If you and your partner are separating or if you want a family member to have a share of your home, you might need to change the legal ownership of your property.
Where part-ownership of a property changes but one or more of the original owners remain, this is known as transfer of equity. A solicitor can guide you through this legal process.
Re-mortgaging your property
Re-mortgaging is a popular way to reduce your monthly repayments or release some of the equity in your home. We can handle the legal aspects of your re-mortgage, dealing with all the paperwork to transfer the funds once your re-mortgage is complete.
Sometimes mortgage lenders encourage you to use their nominated legal representative, but be aware that this person is acting for your mortgage lender, not you.
