I personally would never buy Leasehold but I do appreciate in some areas its the only way to buy a property. When you buy Freehold the value of your property will usually appreciate over time. With a Leasehold the value of your property may depreciate as the Lease gets near to the end. If you have already started the process of buying then the conveyancing solicitor should be able to give you some indication of the cost to extend the Lease.
