Quiz - how well do you understand your lease?
Understand the key things you should know about your lease. If you are a purchaser, this can help make sure your solicitor has covered all of these points and explained them clearly to you.
The applicant (responsible entity) should keep you updated on their application. As a minimum, the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) expects applicants to provide regular updates at the following points in the process and at any time upon your request:
- Documentation submitted
- Eligibility outcome
- Application submitted
- Project procurement
- Outcome of application
- Commencement of works
- Works completed.
You can also access the BSF Leaseholder and Residents Service if an application has been made. This is a secure online portal, designed to give leaseholders and residents status information about applications.
To access the Service you need a unique building code. If you have not received this, contact the applicant. You can use this MS Word letter template to request the code from them.
