Ownership ? What is the difference between leasehold property and freehold property?
TownSIP Research ~ 15 min read
The difference between a leasehold property and a freehold property lies in its ownership . In a leasehold property, the ownership remains with the concerned local authority or the government (as the case may be). The lease period varies typically between 30 to 99 years. But, this does not prevent the individual owner from selling or performing other transactions with the property, provided the lease deed is registered.
In case of a freehold property, the owner of the property is the legal owner and can sell/lease/rent the property as per his/her wish .
