Request a copy of your council lease

If you are a leaseholder of a property where we still own the freehold, we can provide you with a copy of your lease.

There is a fee of £20 for this service.

You will need

  • Leaseholder details
  • Leaseholder identification and signed authorisation if applicable
  • Credit or debit card to make payment 

Receiving the lease

You can opt to have the lease posted to you, or collect it in person.


If you want to receive the lease by post, and the delivery address is not the leaseholder’s address, then you will need to supply signed letter of authorisation and identification from the leaseholder.

You can upload scanned copies to the form, or supply this to us by email or post after you have submitted the form.

We will not send out the copy of the lease until we have received this.

Collect in person

If you want to collect the copy in person, you will need to phone to make an appointment, after you have submitted the form.

  • If you are the leaseholder - you must also bring two forms of acceptable identification. One of which must be photographic ID (i.e. passport or driving licence).
  • If you are not the leaseholder - you must bring a signed letter of authorisation from the leaseholder, as well as photographic identification from the leaseholder.

What happens next

We aim to provide a copy of a lease within three working days of receiving the request form.

If you are receiving or collecting a copy of the lease for the leaseholder, we will not release the copy until we have received signed authorisation from the leaseholder.
