We are currently unable to act on the purchase of leasehold flats, where the building exceeds 5 storeys or 11 metres in height. This is as a direct result of new legislation (The Building Safety Act 2022 and Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022) that was introduced after the Grenfell tragedy in 2017 which has caused complexities in regulations and mortgage lender requirements.
Further guidance is awaited from both the government and mortgage lenders as to how we can proceed with such transactions. Until then, we are unable to act on the purchase of properties that fall into this category.
The new legislation may have iplications if you are looking to buy a leaseholdflat or if you own a leasehold flat that you are looking to sell, remortgage or transfer equity..
