Homeowner guidelines

If you have bought, or are thinking of buying a property from Home Group, there are various documents you should read depending on where you live and what sort of deal you're eligible for.

If you have bought a property from Home Group you could be a freeholder or a leaseholder.

Being a freeholder means you own the house and the land it's built on. As a leaseholder you do not own the land, however you have bought the right to live there for a fixed number of years. You're a leaseholder if:

  • You've bought, or are buying, one of our 'over 55' or retirement properties.
  • You've bought through our shared ownership scheme.




More information

More information on shared ownership leaseholder rights and responsibilities is available on our leaseholder terms and conditions page.  Alternatively you could check out our handbook.

If you're in one of our over-55 and retirement properties - you can read about those rights and responsibilities here.
