When 'U' is written under the Tenure of a propertity in land registry on house prices, what does it mean?

I checked house prices and the property I was monitoring had U written under its Tenure. The property was a leasehold, what does it mane?

  • Is it specifically the 'U' that you don't understand or the fact that it is a leasehold property? I can offer you LOADS of advice regarding leasehold but as for the 'U', I'm as stuck as you are!

  • I could check if it's important to you, but I would hazard a guess that this refers to 'unfree', which was a term used to describe feudal tenure whereby the land was granted in exchange for the provision of services to the Lord of the land in question. Feudal law was, however, abolished many years ago (although as recently as 2000 in Scotland)
