Your lease is a legally binding document that deals with all the legalities of your property.
It sets out the rights and responsibilities for both you as the leaseholder and PA Housing as the freeholder or head lessee
We recommend you seek your own independent legal advice if you have specific questions about the details of your lease, however we are happy to answer any general questions where possible.
Change of Name
If you need to change the names on your lease, for example if you have married or separated, please get in touch:
If you have changed names following a marriage or civil partnership, we will need to see a copy of your marriage or civil partnership certificate, and we will update our records.
If you need to add or remove names on the property we will need notice of the change from your solicitor because the lease is a legal document.
Leases are usually granted with either a 99 or 125 year term. Where the remaining term of your lease starts to fall below 80 years you might face difficulties if you want to sell your home or remortgage because mortgage lenders tend not to approve them.
A lease extension is a statutory right for 100% leaseholders provided you meet the eligibility criteria detailed below. Shared owners cannot formally apply to extend their lease through this statutory route.
