What happens when my lease runs out?
If you have a long residential lease (more than 21 years when granted) and the lease comes to an end...
This will depend on the terms of your lease. Under most leases of flats the leaseholder is responsible for the internal parts of their property unless they are structural. The freeholder is generally responsible for the exterior, structure and any common parts.
