Information for leasehold and shared equity owners
What you need to know
As a leaseholder you have bought the right to live in your property for a fixed number of years. Your lease contains:
- your rights and responsibilities as a leaseholder or shared owner and;
- our rights and responsibilities as the freeholder
You are responsible for repairing and maintaining everything within your premises. Your lease sets out the area of your property.
We look after the structure of the building, exterior and any communal arears of the building. This includes communal walkways and grounds not demised in the lease.
You need to pay your share of the council's cost to maintain the block and for services stated in your lease.
