Frequently Asked Questions
What is Commonhold?
Commonhold is a new type of property ownership designed to be an alternative to the long leasehold system. It is essentially freehold ownership of individual flats, houses and non-residential units within a building or an estate. The rest of the building or estate forming the commonhold is owned and managed jointly by the flat or unit-holders, through a Commonhold association. Ownership is not limited to a number of years which distinguishes it from leasehold ownership.
