Leasehold information and assistance from explaining what a lease is to requesting a service.

  • What is a Leaseholder?
    • If you own a flat within the Southway area you are a Leaseholder.
    • This means that you bought the right to live in your property for a fixed number of years.
    • Southway retain the freehold interest, so we are your landlord.
    • Southway retains a legal duty to enforce your obligations under the lease and also maintain and repair the building your home is in and all shared areas, grounds and services.
    • If you are not sure if you are a leaseholder please contact us.
