A leaseholder is someone who has bought their council-owned flat, which forms part of a larger building.
As the owner of the block we are responsible for maintaining the structure, external and communal facilities and services such as lighting and cleaning.
This kind of ownership is called a 'leasehold' and we have approximately 350 leaseholders.
The Leasehold Scrutiny Panel examines and challenges our performance in housing services for leaseholders.

We are responsible for all repairs to shared facilities such as lifts, lighting, the roof and the structure of the building and communal areas.

Please note: a share of the cost of any repairs will be included in your future service charge.
