Why do ground rents make such good investments?

Investing in ground rents

So landlords know that owning property makes sense.  Long-term return from residential property has outpaced all other investments over the last decades.  Freeholders are at the top of the tree when it comes to property ownership and investing in ground rents can offer attractive returns.  However, for many landlords who own their residential leasehold investment they can also suffer at the hand of unscrupulous ground rent businesses seeking to exploit their position at the top of the land ownership tree.

How to understand ground rents?

The essential thing for landlords and property investors is that they full understand the implications of ground rents and what it means in terms as a potential investment but also how it impacts on their rental yields and investment returns.

Also: the item deals with leasehold extensions, characteristic of flats.
BURT many freehold reversion schemes involve houses. On these, a leaseholder of at least two years' standing usually has the right to enfranchise (= purchase the freehold reversion) under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967.
