The lease is a legal contract between you (the leaseholder) and Trent & Dove Housing (the landlord). The landlord is also known as the freeholder.
The lease sets out exactly what parts of the property have been sold to you and what rights you have over communal (shared) land. The part you own is called the “demised premises” and will be described clearly in your lease, together with a plan.
The lease fully explains your rights and responsibilities as a leaseholder and our rights and responsibilities as a landlord.
Your solicitor should provide you with a copy of your lease when you purchase the property. They should also explain what the clauses in the lease mean and you should make sure you understand what you are signing up for.
