Why should I take action?


We’ve highlighted many of the benefits of taking advantage of a Section 5 offer – but it is important to realise just what an excellent opportunity this presents.

So, why should you acquire your freehold by the Right of First Refusal?

  • The cost of the freehold could be significantly less – in our experience, up to 30-40% cheaper!
  • If the majority of leaseholders don’t respond to the Notice by the given deadline, the freeholder can sell it to someone else, and this may be a professional ground rent investor! A Section 5A Notice often means your freeholder already has a professional ground rent investor lined up to buy the freehold so if you are successful, you prevent this from happening.
  • No negotiations – this is a ‘take it or leave it’ offer!
  • You won’t necessarily need to pay your freeholder’s legal and valuation fees!
  • You finally own the freehold – and control the costs of maintaining the building!
  • Your flat will increase in value and be more attractive to potential purchasers as it can be sold with a share of freehold!

It is vital that you seek valuation and legal advice for your specific circumstances.
