What is a lease?
This is a contract between you and Norwich City Council. When you buy a flat or a maisonette from us you purchase a leasehold interest and we keep the freehold interest. As the freeholder we own the land on which the property is built and charges a ground rent.
The Leaseholders' handbook contains an outline of your rights and responsibilities as a leaseholder and describes our responsibilities to you as your landlord.
