Hi Malynne,

You need a rent vs,. buying calculator. The trick is predicting two things:
1. Interest rates for inflation
2. Appreciation rates

Almost impossible to guess. You can try this one and make your own assumptions. (about halfway down the page, link to Yahoo)

There are many buyers that are content to purchase the leasehold property because of the reduced prices. You really have leverage when the end term of the lease is under 15 years. Most lenders will finance between 5 and 10 years back of the end leasehold date, which does not make the Purchase of the leasehold transaction acceptable if buyer is looking to finance the property for longer terms.

The answers provided by Debbie & Frank below hit the nail on the head. Moreover, it the information is known by your agent, he/she is required to disclose it; if not, you and your agent could be liable for any misrepresentations and/or non-disclosure of material facts.

Furthermore, you may want to ask yourself this questions before you consider requesting arbitration (for which you may have a case); has the ability to sell your home been compromised by your agents disclosure? If the answer is no, then you are better off avoiding an unnecessary dispute.

Kind Regards,
