There are many reasons why you may want to buy the freehold to your flat. The main benefits are that it provides enhanced security and can have major cost benefits. It can stop the value of your flat deteriorating and usually helps you save money on service charges. You should also find it easier to remortgage or sell your flat as many mortgage lenders refuse to lend on flats with less than 60 to 70 years left on the lease.
