The upstairs flat next to us has just been put on the market. I opened our door the other morning and there it was, the real estate agent’s sign standing tall on the fence. I let myself get a little excited as I googled the agent’s name and our street but the glimmer of hope was quickly extinguished once I saw the price. In a previous post I reflected on where we might like to live ultimately but London house prices are starting to make that decision for us.
(update: the flat sold less than two weeks later from when I posted this!)
I brushed off my disappointment at the local cafe where I take our son for my regular dose of caffeine and started checking the houses for sale on Rightmove.
Two of the terms I had to learn the meaning of in the UK when I started looking at houses and flats for sale were freehold and leasehold and I’d like to talk a little more about the difference between the two today.
