In short, the freeholder of a property owns it outright, including the land it is built on. This means that if you own/buy a freehold you’re responsible for maintaining your property and land (it’s important to budget for these costs accordingly). There are many benefits to owning a freehold, the main one being that you won’t have to worry about the lease running out as you own the property outright.
With a leasehold, you own the property for the length of your lease agreement with the freeholder. This means that when the lease ends, ownership returns to the freeholder (unless you can extend the lease). If you’re purchasing a leasehold it is important to consider how many years are left on the lease (most mortgage lenders won’t lend on a property with a lease under 70 years)- however, you can ask the landlord to extend the lease at any time.
