Leaseholder Handbook

Tenant handbook welcome banner

This handbook explains your rights and responsibilities, as well as the Council’s responsibilities as your Landlord. It also gives details of housing services and other useful information. It has been produced to help you understand what being a leaseholder means.

If you have any questions that we have not covered in this handbook, you can contact Home Ownership Services for advice. You will find a list of useful telephone numbers at the back of this handbook.

This Handbook does not replace your Lease, which is your legal contract with Sandwell MBC.  This Handbook is purely for information only and is not meant to be a full interpretation of the legal requirements or covenants contained within your lease document.

Information contained in this Handbook will be updated from time to time.

If you have a dispute concerning the conditions of your lease with Sandwell MBC, you should seek independent professional advice.
