Purchase of redundant communal spaces

There are a lot of communal spaces such as basements lofts and storage cupboards that are no longer in use.

We understand that some leaseholders would benefit from the use of these spaces and allow them to extend their existing property which is why we have introduced a policy to sell off these spaces to leaseholders.

You can obtain an application form and guidance notes from a legal instructing officer at home ownership services on 020 7926 6700.

Each application is subject to consultation with local area office and other residents in your block, so you are advised to discuss your ideas with your fellow residents.

There is a fee of £250 per application (even if you application is unsuccessful) and all cheques should be made payable to The London Borough of Lambeth.
