Ogmore By Sea Leasehold Conveyancing - Sample of Questions you should ask Prior to Purchasing
Are any of leasehold owners in dispute over their service charge liability? How long is the Lease? You should be aware that where the lease has less than 80 years it will affect the value of the apartment. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are content with remaining years on the lease.
