Leasehold woodland

Paperwork, grants, legal issues

Hi all.

Can anyone tell me why a woodland would be sold leasehold ?.

Is it simply so the seller can have some sort of say on the future of the plot ?.

I ask as the adjoining parcel of woodland to my own has just come up on a 999 year leasehold sale basis.

Any info would be great.

Rgds, Hobby

Leasehold is sometimes cheaper than freehold and so long as there is a long lease then there shouldn't be any problem. certain rights may be kept back - shooting etc!
