When you buy a council flat or maisonette you become a leaseholder, this means that you have the right to occupy the property on a long lease for a fixed number of years.
Wolverhampton City Council remains the freeholder of the building and is responsible for the exterior and structure of the building as well as the communal areas. You will be asked to contribute to the cost of maintaining these plus certain services that we provide, through your annual service charge. For more details, read our how charges are calculated page.
