Not just Cornwall.

See a really nice Dartmoor house? An affordable £250k, probably because it needs work, like installing modern electrics and connecting to water mains, not to mention general refurbishment for (if nothing bad turns up) a large six-digit builders bill.

Look at the smallprint. That £250k isn't the house, it's a lease that expires in 2026, after which you pony up all over again for up to a 20 year maximum. Could that be why noone has put in the investment to modernise? Oh, and you're also paying £7k/year rent, which will also have to be renegotiated when the term is up.

That's what it's like having Charles's mafia on your patch.
