    Sell your flat with a short lease

    Once the lease length on the property you own is below 80 years unexpired you’re putting yourself in a precarious position. The value of your asset will begin to tumble and the short term will have an impact on its saleability.

    Your property will become unmortgageable with lenders steering well clear of such properties. This is in tandem with buyers looking elsewhere. Purchasing your property will result in significant extra costs for the buyer who will have to extend the lease as the cost gets greater and greater.

    The issues of owning short lease properties and putting off extending are as follows:

    • Your property becomes tricky to sell on the open market.
    • As time goes by your flat will fall further in value.
    • As time goes by the cost of extending your lease will increase.

    Property Escape can alleviate all of the stresses that come with short lease properties. As experienced freeholders we have what it takes to tackle such issues and can provide you with a guaranteed cash offer for the flat or maisonette in question. Regardless of the lease length we buy such properties swiftly and hassle-free.
