The Title Deeds for your property should clearly state your responsibilities for work to shared areas within your Estate or common parts of your building. Every house or flat within our Estates is subject to conditions contained in the Title Deeds for that property. Please note that not every property within your area will have the same conditions and may vary. The Title Deeds set out your rights and responsibilities in relation to your property and to the others within the Estate. This means that when you purchase a property you take on the rights and responsibilities for not only your own house, but also relating to the wider area.
When maintenance is required to common parts of a flat (or block) your Title Deeds should detail the parts which are common and identify the basis on which each owner’s share is calculated.
If you have any queries relating to your Title Deeds, you should contact your Solicitor.
