  • Be consulted on any major works and long-term agreements that are to take place at the building in which your property is contained
  • Challenge service and administration charges
  • Use the specified areas defined in your lease for parking, access and storage use
  • Extend your lease if you have owned your property for at least two years
  • To sublet your flat subject to you notifying us and/or requesting permission if required under the terms of your lease and registering with Rent Smart Wales under the Housing (Wales) Act 2014.

  • Assign (sell the remainder) of the lease – certain conditions may apply if you purchased your flat through Right to Buy or Right to Acquire
  • Buy the freehold – in certain situations leaseholders of flats may have the right to buy the freehold of the building as a group. The group can then decide how to manage their building. This is known as enfranchisement
