How accurate is your freehold calculator?

Our freehold valuation calculator has been formulated using current market data to provide you with the most accurate estimations possible. Although the results will help you to understand the potential value of your freehold ground rents, they should not be used in place of a formal valuation. The results should not be relied upon and cannot be used in a tribunal or court proceedings.

Can I value my freehold ground rents myself?

Without specialist knowledge it would be extremely difficult to carry out an accurate valuation or even to know where to begin. There are many variables to consider and each must be assessed accurately. Furthermore, if a crucial detail is missed your valuation could be off by thousands of pounds.

FAQsSection 20 Notice of major works

How do I prepare a Section 20 Notice for major works?

Section 20 Notices require careful attention to detail and if served incorrectly, could prevent the landlord from collecting contributions from the leaseholders for major works. We recommend seeking assistance from industry professionals or a qualified solicitor if you do not know how to serve Section 20 Notices. Request our free Section 20 templates here.
