Choose your housing type:

The answer to this question depends on what type of tenant or owner you are.

Your rights and responsibilities are set out in your lease or tenancy agreement. There are some general rights and responsibilities that vary depending on what type of tenant you are.

All lease agreements are slightly different. In summary, you have the right to:

  • Live in your home in peace and quiet
  • Access your home (including any shared areas) at all times
  • Be consulted about any long-term maintenance and improvement work

You must:

  • Keep your home clean and redecorate when necessary
  • Pay your service charges and ground rent
  • Allow us or our representatives to enter, inspect or repair your home
  • Keep your home free from vermin, such as mice and cockroaches
  • Keep your garden neat and tidy

As the leaseholder, you're responsible for how your family and visitors behave. We want you and everyone around you to enjoy your homes, so you, your family and your visitors must not:

  • Use your home or any shared area for illegal activities
  • Damage or graffiti the property
  • Run a business from your home without our permission
  • Leave things in shared areas, as this causes a fire risk
  • Put up structures (such as sheds or garages) without our permission
  • Park anywhere on your property, except in defined parking areas
  • Do major car repairs or park an illegal or unroadworthy vehicle around your home or on the road
  • Cause a nuisance or disturb other people
  • Throw anything from a window, block or balcony

In turn, we:

  • Can't change your lease without your permission
  • Will tell you about any rent and service charges you must pay
  • Must tell you in advance about any changes to your rent or service charges
  • Will consult you on how we manage your home and services
  • Must consult you on any long-term maintenance and improvement work we want to do (as set out in Section 20 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985).

If you want more detail, check your lease. You should have a copy from when you bought your house. If you don't know where it is, you can order a copy of your lease from the Land Registry.
