If you buy a house, you buy the freehold. If the property is freehold you own the property and the land the property is on.
If you buy a flat, you purchase the leasehold, or buy into a share of the freehold.
Buying a house is a great feeling, and has many benefits including:
1. Over the long run, detached houses can be a significant investment
2. Home buyers can take advantage of the Help to Buy Scheme
3. The houses have sufficient space to raise a family, start a hobby and have the opportunity to build experiences around the house
4. Single family homes and detached houses have no common walls, floors or ceilings
A single family stand alone house is usually a free standing dwelling with at least some amount of private land. Buying a detached home would, therefore, come with responsibilities, so be prepared for yard work, repairs, especially if you buy an older house and maintenance of the property.
It is important to note that single detached homes have advantages and disadvantages.
