Why should I buy the freehold of my home?

Your lease comes with strict conditions limiting what you can and can’t do with your property. Buying your freehold means you are no longer bound by those conditions.

Owning your freehold can increase the value of your home by up to 10 per cent but it also means you are free to do anything you like with your property – within the law of course!

That means you will no longer have to pay ground rent.

You will also no longer have to comply with the conditions on your lease.

This means you would be free to run a business from your home.

You will also no longer be liable for fees or have to ask permission if you wish to:

  • Build an extension or carry out other improvements;
  • Re-mortgage your home;
  • Sell your home

We do NOT allow equity release or similar schemes on properties where Anderton Estate Investments holds the freehold.

These are just some of the reasons to buy your lease, but as always we recommend you seek professional advice before going ahead with the purchase.
