What You'll Learn

The ownership and management of flats is complex and usually requires highly skilled professionals. This is because there are common parts shared between all residents which need to be managed and paid for. There are also special legal issues concerning leases, landlord and tenant matters as well as a whole host of legislation that specifically affects flats for example the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002.

With more flats being built that houses each year, it is more important than ever to understand the background to owning in a flat.
