Parthenia Research

Parthenia Research has been set up by academics to ascertain the true relationship between the value of the freehold of a property against the value of the property held on a lease (without rights). This research started in 2011 and is the only analysis to use thousands of actual flat and house sales from the 'no-Act world'.

The analysis is robust and we utilize standard statistical techniques. The results are 'freeholder friendly' for very short and very long leases and our research may increase the amount due in compensation. However, for leases between 15 years to 70 years it is 'leaseholder friendly' and may significantly reduce the cost of extending your lease or buying your freehold e.g. for a mid term lease the reduction may be circa 30%.
