    Freehold reversion price

    Hello All,

    Please can I ask for some assistance.

    I have a leasehold house that has 28 years left of a 99 year lease remaining.

    the ground rent is £9 a year and the valuation of other freehold properties on the road are around £240k.

    I have received a freehold price for £25600 and was wondering whether this was correct.

    Also what type of notice do I need to serve on the landlord.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.



    About right

    House worth £240K - therefore value of land worth circa 35% = £84k

    Right to receive 84k in 28 years time discounted at 4.75% (in line with Sportelli) = £84,000 / 1.045^28 = £84,000 / 3.43 = £24,489

    In excel the formula would be =round(1.045^28,5)

    The 5 = number of decimal places you want


      Thank you for your reply greatly appreciated.

        First of all, you should not be stating or implying to anyone, least of all your landlord, that you have breached the lease. An admission of a breach saves the landlord the trouble of having to determine that a breach has occurred and has no benefit whatsoever to you.

        Hi there. I hope someone can help me because I have been frantic with worry for 3 days now. This is a bit long!

        I bought a leasehold flat in July 2014. Since I've been here, I have done everything to it to bring it up to a modern acceptable standard. Note that the floorpan of the property...

        Ok, the situation is this...

        I am a director of the freehold management company for a small block of flats (other directors being leaseholders like myself).

        For a start:
        1. Any clause that says that you have to keep floors carpeted, or can't have wooden floors.
        2. Any clause that states that you need inform the freeholder, and/or get freeholder's permission, for non structural alterations.
        3. Any clause that requires you not to do anything...

        I thought that ground floors only were allowed wooden floors.

        And you're right, if I was in my buyer's shoes, I would hate the guy who sold them a flat with clearly weakened soundproofing qualities. I mean, it wasn't great anyway, but it was liveable.

        What clauses should I...

        Rather than withdrawing from the sale, you could just inform the buyers solicitor that you initially answered these questions thinking that they referred only to structural changes, but would like to inform them of the work that you have done.
        It will then be up to the buyer whether they continue...

        I also have no Building Regulations certificates, even though I may have decreased the acoustic and thermal properties of the building.

        Nothing that you have said that you have done to your flat seems to breach the lease clauses that you have quoted - but that doesn't mean that you have breached clauses that you haven't quoted as you clearly haven't quoted all potentially relevant clauses in full.

        It sounds more like the...
