Leasehold Information

Leasehold ownership of a home is simply a long-term tenancy which gives the leaseholder the right to use the property for living purposes for a set period of time. Bron Afon has over 900 leasehold properties in Torfaen and we have a specialist leasehold team who can help you with any questions.

 Leasehold management team

The team has been developed to give a specialised service to Bron Afon leaseholders.

Here are some of the things that you can speak to a member of the team about:

  • Your rights and responsibilities as a leaseholder
  • Major works or improvements that may be carried out to your block
  • Making alterations to your property
  • Paying service charges
  • Subletting or selling your home
  • Anti-social behaviour or boundary disputes

You can contact your designated leasehold officer by calling Kevin Fuller on 01633 620457 or email kevin.fuller@bronafon.org.uk or Miriam Heare on 01633 620434 or email Miriam.Heare@bronafon.org.uk. To find out which leasehold officer has responsibility for your community please click here.

Major Works – A Good Practice Guide for leaseholders

The guide has been produced by The Welsh Government, Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA), Community Housing Cymru (CHC) and The Leasehold Advisory Service (LEASE). Social Registered Landlords and Leaseholders in Wales, were asked to be involved in putting it together. Bron Afon staff and leaseholders contributed to the development of this guide.

The guide was launched by Torfaen’s Lynne Neagle A.M. and endorsed by Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children Carl Sargeant A.M.
