Pentwyn residential property owned on a long lease is a depreciating asset because a leaseholder only owns the property for a set term.
Leasehold properties in Pentwyn with in excess of one hundred years remaining on the lease are often referred to as ‘virtual freehold’. This is where the lease value the same as a freehold interest in your home. In such situations there is often little upside in buying the freehold unless savings on ground rent and estate charges warrant it.

Mr and Mrs. Y Young purchased a studio apartment in Pentwyn in March 2001. The question was if we could shed any light on how much (roughly) price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease. Comparative properties in Pentwyn with an extended lease were worth £171,800. The average amount of ground rent was £55 collected monthly. The lease concluded in 2073. Taking into account 50 years left we calculated the compensation to the freeholder to extend the lease to be between £33,300 and £38,400 not including expenses.
In 2012 we were contacted by Mr and Mrs. G Sharif who, having owned a garden apartment in Pentwyn in November 2011.

The average amount of ground rent was £45 billed yearly. The lease lapsed in 2093. Taking into account 70 years unexpired we calculated the premium to the freeholder for the lease extension to be within £12,400 and £14,200 plus professional charges.
