Is it easy to buy a freehold without assistance?
I’ve been in my house for two years now and looking at buying the freehold. I pay my lease via homeground and they offer a service to enable you to buy the freehold but they seem to charge you £150 for the offer and then £350 for their admin costs.
Do I need to use them or is the process simple enough I can negotiate with the freeholder directly?
Don’t see if there is a benefit in paying for homeground to handle the negotiations.
