Your lease

Your lease agreement is a legal contract between ourselves (the landlord) and you (the tenant), under which you are granted access to the property for a certain amount of time. There are conditions attached to this agreement regarding how and by whom the property may be used.

Your lease document outlines this agreement and tells us:

  • Proof of ownership of the property
  • The number of years remaining on your lease

We will need to check the details of your lease and keep a copy for our records. We usually obtain a copy your lease from the HM Land Registry website.

Less than 80 years remaining on your lease?

If you have a short lease (80 years or less remaining), it may be difficult to get a mortgage.

Therefore, before you commission a surveyor, check the number of years remaining on your lease. If you need help with this please call us on 020 8607 0550 and we will be happy to help.

It is possible to extend a short lease and we can advise you on your options. Please email our Aftersales team at - note, this is only if you are a shared owner.
