Ownership Leasehold - What is this?

Freehold is where a person or organisation has outright ownership, forever, of a property and the land it’s built on.

Leasehold is a long-term tenancy where someone buys the right to live in a property for a certain period, usually 99 or 125 years. Unless the leaseholder makes arrangements to extend it, once the lease ends, ownership of the property returns to the freeholder. As a leaseholder, if you own a property in a block of flats, you don’t own the land the property sits on. This is owned by the freeholder of the property. Leaseholders usually pay ground rent too.

The rules a leaseholder must follow are governed by a contract, known as the lease. It can include restrictions on what they can do to a property. For example, whether they can have pets and whether they can rent the property out. The lease will also detail the leaseholder's rights. These may include, for example, the right to use the common parts or gardens, or to park a car in a shared car park.

In London, leasehold is most common as a tenure to sell flats. However, some houses are also leasehold, although this is more common outside of London.

Shared Ownership is a type of affordable home ownership when a purchaser takes out a mortgage on a share of a property and pays rent to a landlord on the remaining share.

For example, someone might buy a 50 per cent share in a property and pay rent to the landlord on the remaining 50 per cent. Purchasers then have the opportunity to ‘staircase’ up their share of the property, gradually increasing the proportion of their home that they own outright and therefore paying less rent on the remaining portion, until they own 100 per cent of their home.
