Owning the freehold to a property.

I've seen a ground floor flat I like which includes the freehold to the whole building. What does that mean with regards to the owner or tenant in the first floor flat?

  • You (or your solicitor) will need to study the details of the lease to answer that question. The normal case is that the freeholder will be responsible for the whole structure of the building but the lease will specify the contribution to costs to be made by the leaseholder of the upper flat. The whole business of managing a freehold is becoming increasingly complex and bureaucratic so be very careful.
