Homeowner's Handbook

Our Homeowner’s Handbook provides you with useful information about your home and responsibilities as a leaseholder or freeholder.

The downloadable guide will tell you:

  • what lease and freehold transfers are and what they contain
  • who is responsible for repairs to your home
  • what service charges are and how they are calculated
  • how we let you know we are planning to carry out repairs to your building
  • how to make claims under building insurance
  • what to do if you want to alter, sublet or sell your property.
