Letting in Leasehold

Buy-to-let has seen some phenomenal growth over the last few years and residential lettings are now a substantial part of the housing sector.

Letting a leasehold flat is not difficult but it does require some unique considerations because of the communal living arrangements in a block of flats. Considerations which if overlooked can lead to future problems.

Cooperation and good communication between leaseholders, managing agents and lettings agents is essential for successful leasehold lettings.
