Your lease agreement

Your lease agreement explains:

  • which parts of the building have been sold to you
  • how much ground rent you have to pay and when
  • how service charges are calculated and when they should be paid
  • what repairs you are responsible for and how repairs to the structure and shared areas of the building are arranged and paid for.

Every lease is different and it is important you check what your lease says. If you don’t have a copy, you can get one from the solicitor who did the legal work when you bought your home.

You can also get a copy from our Property Records Office, email: AskPropertyRecords@birmingham.gov.uk though there is a charge for this service.
