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.
Your lease should describe the extent of your “demised premises” i.e. what you own. It is common for the leaseholder to own the flat entrance door and be responsible for its maintenance and repair. However, sometimes the freeholder retains ownership of this door and /or is responsible for its maintenance and repair.
