Hi, thanks for your reply.
I am afraid that your Daughter has no legal standing to contest anything, as she is legally committed to purchase, now that Contracts have been exchanged, and by exchanging, she has agreed to all the terms as stipulated in the Lease/the price etc. As regards ***** ***** the only major 2 points your Daughter need to be aware of is-
1. the yearly ground rent. The lease will stipulate how much this is.
2. she will legally be entitled to buy the Freehold after 2 years.
As regards ***** ***** which apply even when the property is Freehold, there are always various covenants on new build Freehold properties, most of which are not too restrictive I am glad to say. There will no doubt be a covenant stating that Persimmon's consent will be required for any extensions, but provided your Daughter obtained the relevant planning permission, they will grant consent. There shouldn't really be any other covenants which are very detrimental.
I would have hoped that her Solicitor would have fully advised her concerning the two points concerning the Lease. If he/she did not, your Daughter should raise a complaint to the Complaints Partner at the Firm.
I am sorry your Daughter is in this position, but the press reports over Leaseholds were somewhat over the top and provided the ground rent is not too expensive, your Daughter should just make sure that she buys the Freehold after 2 years, unless Persimmon willingly allow her to buy it before the 2 year period.
I hope this assists and if so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer in the top right hand corner of your screen. Kind Regards Al
