Issy Cowan – a week at SAY
At the beginning of the week I worked on lease extensions which I previously had no knowledge of. It was interesting to learn about leaseholds and freeholds as well as finding out many houses are actually leased and owned for a certain period of time before it is reverted back to the freeholder. I then worked on writing my first lease report.
I also learnt about different PRS schemes and how they are managed and rented. I then went to visit Gasholders and saw the development model for whole project which was extensive and incredibly impressive. Argent who are developing the Gasholder building have taken an approach which will see the regeneration of the whole area. Lastly, on my final day I went to a lease inspection in which I drew up a floor plan and measured the GIA of the flat, a skill which no doubt I’ll need in the future. I thoroughly enjoyed my work experience and hope to come and work for SAY property again.
