I'm a leaseholder
If you’ve bought a council flat or maisonette, either directly through the right to buy scheme or from a previous owner, you’re a council leaseholder.
Over 160 people have bought their flat under the right to buy scheme across the Stroud district. We want to support and encourage our leaseholders to play an active part in their communities and provide them with an equal communal repairs and cleaning service to our tenants.
As landlord and leaseholder we both have particular responsibilities which you can read all about in your leaseholder handbook and service standard.
