Homeownership & Renting


Are you a homeowner? Or are you a renter? This section covers a number of issues that might be relevant to you – including leasehold, freehold, council tax bands and the electoral roll.

Are you in a leasehold property? For all the info on the differences between leasehold and freehold properties, plus for all about purchasing a freehold or extending a lease, see our respective guides.


Believe you're in the wrong council tax band? Our Council Tax Bands guide talks you through how you can check what band your property is in, and explains what the steps are if you decide to challenge the banding – something which could mean paying £100s less each year.

For this and much more, have a browse of our Homeownership & Renting page.
