Living in a Residential Property

Residential blocks are almost always made up of leasehold properties. Each property leaseholder (the owner) has a responsibility for shared or common parts of the site and pays either a monthly or annual sum into a common fund to meet these shared responsibilities.

This can be for general maintenance or for greater costs but ensures that your block is in tip-top condition at all times.

The fund is managed by your residential block’s own Company Directors that have previously been elected from among the leaseholders at the A.G.M. Each leaseholder usually holds a single share, enabling the management to be a fair, consolidated activity.

However, not all residents are shareholders; you need to be an owner and a leaseholder to own a share.
