How we can help

It is possible to increase revenue in a development by selling ground rent investments when all the flats in the scheme are sold.

In addition to drafting all necessary legal documents, we will also be able to advise you on maximising the value of the property as a whole by creating value in the freehold interest in the long term. This can be done by using escalating ground rent provisions and shorter leases.

We are here to help with your development and its sub-division regardless of the size of the scheme or its complexity and we will work with you to make sure everything goes to plan.

Friendly yet direct, our team is passionate about every case we take on, and we believe the entire process requires constant communication. We will, therefore, guide you through the technicalities involved, offering expert advice from start to finish.

Why legal help is important

Typically, the value of the freehold reversion will be calculated as a multiple of the ground rent of each apartment and their total number. As such, this will increase according to the number of flats in the building following the grant of the leases. This freehold interest can be sold separately in the future as there is a strong market for such investments.

Blackstone are experts in the drafting of all necessary documentation and can guide you with the process of the sale of the freehold or advise you if you decide to sell the freehold of the property with the property itself. This will only apply to houses as opposed to flats.
