  • Onward Chain: the seller needs to complete the purchase of a property before they can move out. Years Lease. Leasehold property, in principle a leasehold is a very long term rental agreement (usually starting at 99 years or more). If there is less than ~70 years lease remaining you may not get a mortgage. Ground Rent : the rent payable on a leasehold property. Service Charge: charge for the maintenance of the structure of a leasehold property. PA: Per Annum = Yearly.
