Council leaseholders and right to buy

Information for council leaseholders and about the Right to Buy

When you buy a flat from the council, you are buying only part of a larger building. 

We, as the owner of the block, keep responsibility for maintaining all shared parts and services such as:

  • Caretaking
  • Lighting
  • Cleaning and so on

We are entitled to a contribution towards the cost of managing and maintaining the block.
This kind of ownership is called 'leasehold'.

There are approximately 455 council leasehold properties in the Salisbury and South Wiltshire area.

If you are a council leaseholder, you can find useful information below.
