Commonhold Law and Commonhold Leases

Commonhold is a form of ownership (or tenure) for multi-occupancy developments. Each unit-holder owns the freehold of their home, and a commonhold or residents' association owns and manages the common parts of the property. The Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom built on common hold law. It introduced commonhold, a new way of owning land similar to the Australian strata title or the American condominium, into English and Welsh law. Commonholds were introduced to deal with the perceived unfairness of the existing leasehold system. Commonhold ownership has not become popular, and in 2018 the Law Commission launched a consultation into ways to expand usage of commonhold estates. Mari Knowles a Common hold lease expert with briefly introduce the law and common hold lease before a discussion chaired by Torange Khonsari.
