Lease Details - We are advised the property is leasehold for a term of 99 years from 1988 (68 years unexpired at time of writing). A service charge is payable in accordance with the terms of the lease. The current service charge for the period is £134.36 per month, however this amount is subject to change. The property is one of Anchor Hanovers Government subsidised estates which means that it is being offered for 70% of the open market value. This was because the property was built with the aid of a Government Grant which reduced the price by a 30% proportion of its value. A purchaser, therefore, will pay for and own a 70% proportion of its value. The lease specifies the special conditions that are applicable to occupation and selling the property. The agents have not checked the legal documents to verify the status of the property. We therefore advise the buyers to satisfy themselves on the tenure and lease requirements.
