Does the Surveyor Check the Freehold or Leasehold Status of the Property?

No. Your solicitor will check this as part of the conveyancing process. If are unable to get the status from the vendor's solicitor, they will perform a search to try and determine the status.

If the property is Leasehold, your solicitor will investigate to check the terms of the lease. Most banks will only have issues lending against a Leasehold property if there are less than 80 years remaining on the lease.

QUICK TIP! Did you know you can also check the freehold status of a property yourself? Just go to login as a guest and search by the property's Eircode.
