A leaseholder is someone who owns a property on a lease, typically for 99, 125 or 999 years. The length of the lease decreases year by year until it eventually runs out.
A leaseholder is also called a tenant, but this should not be confused with short term agreements. It is essential to be familiar and understand the terms of your lease because this sets out your rights and obligations.
