Over 30 years' experience in leasehold property management and investment has been condensed by Bernie Wales into this 3rd Edition e-book. Revised, Updated and Expanded ... that's now over 41,000 words - but they are words which take a complex subject and explain it in an easily understandable way.


Are you in a situation where ...

  • You bought a leasehold property that looked good – and then found there were hidden costs you didn’t know about?
  • You look through the lease and the legal paperwork – but haven’t got a real understanding of what it all means?
  • You receive bills from the Freeholder – and from the Residents’ Management Company – and don’t know who to pay?
  • You’re asked to contribute huge sums of money for major works – but don’t seem to have a say in what’s going on?
  • You have concerns about Health & Safety – but don’t know whether that’s your responsibility or the Managing Agents?
  • You have a ‘short lease’ and can’t sell – but don’t know the legal process for extending it.
  • You thought buying a flat would be simple – but now think it’s stunningly complicated?

If you believe that you have no choice but to walk away from leasehold property because it’s a legal and financial minefield ...


... Bernie Wales will show you how to get back in the driving seat and become a happy owner occupier or successful buy-to-let leasehold investor.

Buying leasehold property, in particular leasehold flats, is viewed by many as a risky venture. Yes it can be risky – but any investment is risky. It's just a question of quantifying that risk, minimising that risk, and managing that risk to ensure you win rather than lose.

The good news is there are a series of simple actions and strategies that can lead you, step-by-step, to trouble free properties, to more profitable purchases and a better return from your current leasehold investments.

Here’s what readers have said:

I bought Bernie’s book ‘just-in-time’ to understand the implications of my owning leasehold properties. It has and will continue to save me thousands of pounds.

Of course there is much more in the book than just information for property investors.

Definitely worth the price. I recommend it

Patti Austin


Bernie has a wealth of knowledge in leasehold, properties, I can highly recommend this e-book!

Teresa Ballard


I just wanted to bury my head in the sand when it came to issues with my freeholder, but Bernie (whom I have had the privilege to sit down with and tackle it with) is not only an amazingly knowledgeable expert, but his enthusiasm and problem solving approach makes what I expected to be a ‘drag’ of a topic really rather interesting.

Emma Stockdale


Once again Bernie unravels the mysteries of leasehold property. A ‘must read’ for anyone interested in this subject.

Mike Mather


I would recommend this book as a real lesson in specialist advice. It is written in clear sections and keeps to the key facts without having technical in-depth references to the law, which is very refreshing.

To investors or flat owners, it provides an explanation as to why certain subjects are so important.

The case studies are helpful, giving confidence to gain control and not to be frightened to take action.

I certainly felt more inspired and inquisitive; therefore this tells me the book works.
