Share of Freehold
The flat is held on a lease originally of 125 years (107 remaining). The flat owner also owns one 33rd share of the company set up to own the freehold. The lease can be extended to 999 years at little cost (subject to a Land Registry registration fee and your own solicitor’s costs.).
All exterior maintenance, up-keep of the grounds and buildings insurance is covered by an annual service charge. We understand that the charge is usually around £120 per month. There is no ground rent.
To ensure the privacy and quiet enjoyment of the residents, the 33 owners of Castle Heights voted in 2017 no longer to allow holiday letting of the individual properties. The properties can be let on assured shorthold tenancies (AST) and can be used on a non-commercial basis by family and friends. They can not be formally rented as holiday lets.
