Shared ownership for tenants
Responsibility for repairs
If you own a shared ownership lease for a house you will have responsibility for all repairs to the interior and exterior of the property.
If you own a shared ownership lease for a flat you are responsible for internal repairs, including replacement of fixtures and fittings.
Repairs and upkeep of the building’s structure, exterior and communal parts and services remain the responsibility of the council, but you may incur a cost for any such repairs and improvement works.
