Leaseholder responsibilities

This page provides general information about your rights and responsibilities as a leaseholder

Your lease is a legally binding document between you (the leaseholder) and GUHG (your landlord). It sets out your rights and responsibilities and those of your landlord. It gives you the right to live in the property for a fixed period of time as long as you comply with the conditions set out within it.

Before you purchased your property your solicitor should have explained the terms and conditions of your lease to you. If you have any queries please contact us, or alternatively you may wish to seek independent advice, for example from Citizens Advice, the Leaseholder Advisory Service (LEASE) or your own solicitor. Your mortgage lender should keep the original copy of your lease and copies can be obtained from them. We may also be able to provide you with a copy, but there may be a charge.

If you do not have a mortgage you should keep the original copy of your lease and ensure it is safely stored.
