Leasehold Timebomb Scandal

Leasehold Scandal a Ticking Timebomb

When you hear the word scandal you might think of the Oscar's host row, the news on Brexit or even the latest Strictly Come Dancing celebrity affair.

However, there’s a serious scandal going on in the UK right now which is costing people who have leaseholds on their properties tens of thousands of pounds.
At least twice a week in our Pontcanna, Roath and Cyncoed branches we come across properties in Cardiff with less than 85 years left on their leases.
Owners of properties with leases like these need to act NOW.

Here's Cyncoed Branch Manager Aaron Pitman to explain why:

"Once a lease goes below 80 years it costs significantly more to renew. It’s a scandal that more isn’t being done to warn and help homeowners affected by this ticking time bomb and it's staggering how few leaseholders are aware of the potential problem creeping towards them relentlessly.
Many people are unwittingly sleep walking their way to a big and costly problem if they don’t take action. That’s why we have a free Leasehold Extension Advice hotline on 02920 730887 where we can answer your questions and refer you to reasonably priced legal experts who specialise in this field."

Ted James, Head of PR (Pet Relations)

PS – If in doubt check your lease to see how long you have left. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
