There’s nothing more precious than time spent with your family and what better way to make the most of it, than with your own holiday home by the Broads.
From countryside walks to days on the beach and romps around a region steeped in history, Benjamin Race reveals how you can explore it all from your doorstep with a leasehold holiday home.
What is a leasehold holiday home?
When you buy a leasehold property, you buy the right to occupy it for a given length of time – for as long as 125 years.
Plenty of time to turn your holiday house into a home and make it a place for the children to grow up and somewhere you can all come back to even after they’ve flown the nest.
““It’s important to find a home that’s right for you and has everything your family needs to relax, unwind and spend those quality moments,” Benjamin said.
What are the benefits of owning a leasehold holiday home?
- Lower initial costs compared to a freehold holiday property
- Simple process to resell in the future
- You can holiday with friends and family whenever you like
- Can earn extra from lettings and save for the future
“Owning a holiday home on a managed park gives the holiday home owner great peace of mind knowing there’s always someone on-site to look after it for you - whether it be the onsite team, approved contractors, fully managed holiday lets as well as a friendly community of like-minded holiday homeowners,” Benjamin said.
“We can take care of your holiday home and make sure your weekends are more about sipping wine on your decking, rather than mowing the lawn. It is supposed to be a holiday home after all!”
What to look out for when buying a leasehold holiday home
“My advice is to ask lots of questions. A holiday park operator should be there to make sure you have all the information you need before you buy a holiday home,” Benjamin said.
“You may also wish to enlist the help of a conveyancing solicitor.”
You’ll want to know the price of the property and what that includes – is the place furnished and does it come with white goods?
You should also understand the lease and any restrictions, so it is clear you know what you are buying.
Also if you intend to let the property at times you’re not using it, check you can you do this and if you need to be aware of any rules before you take your first booking.
