We have around a thousand leaseholders across Nottingham. Leaseholders are customers who have exercised their right to buy their home, or who have bought it on the open market.

Leasehold properties are mainly flats. This is because as a leaseholder, you’re essentially buying the inside of the property - think of it as owning everything from the plaster on the walls inwards – but the outside is owned by Nottingham City Council Housing Services.

When you apply to become a leaseholder, you'll be offered a session with one of the members of the team. The session will cover the rights and responsibilities you will take on once you become a leaseholder, the possible extra costs that could occur and tips on how to get the most out of a lease.

This offer is free - you do not have to take it up but it might help you understand how the whole process works.

Leaseholders get most of the services that tenants do, including gas maintenance checks. We do charge leaseholders for some services.
