Freehold Calculator

Calculate the value of your Freehold Ground Rents

Find out how much your freehold interest is worth with our freehold valuation calculator. 

Whether you want to sell your freehold ground rents or are simply interested to gauge what your investment may be worth, our freehold calculator will help you to understand the potential value of your freehold ground rents. You’ll then be able to use this estimation of value to help you decide if and when you may be interested in selling.  Please be aware that any values provided are for guide purposes only and cannot be used in a tribunal or court proceedings. 

Calculate freehold value in just a few, simple steps

To find out approximately how much your freehold is worth, you will need to enter specific details into the calculator tool for each flat in the building. These details include the current market value of each flat, the start date of each lease, the current annual ground rent for each flat and the original lease term for each flat (this is commonly 99, 125 or 999 years). 

You can give each flat a name by clicking in the ‘Flat name’ box. Once you’ve finished with one flat, you simply need to press the green ‘+’ button to enter details for another flat. If you make a mistake or need to delete a property, you can do so by pressing the red ‘bin’ button. When you’ve finished populating the freehold calculator tool with all the flats in your building, press the orange ‘calculate’ button to see your estimated value.

If you are selling your freehold interest, it’s important to seek a professional valuation to ensure accuracy. With so many factors to consider when valuing freehold ground rents, it is easy to overlook an important element which could result in a difference of thousands of pounds. 

Once you’ve gained insight using our freehold valuation calculator, you may wish to contact us for a free appraisal from one of our freehold experts. This will ensure that you get the maximum return for your freehold ground rents from the freehold buyer.
