Cross leases are different to freehold titles.
You and your neighbour(s) each own an equal share in the land (fee simple) and you each lease your house (called “the Flat”) from the other.
Each flat owner has a lease for their flat and their section which is registered on the title.
The leases define each flat owner’s exclusive use areas (ie the surrounding land, garages, carparks etc) and common areas (ie driveways, paths etc).
You need to be vigilant when looking to buy a crosslease as crosslease titles can be defective!
The flats plan needs to match the house exactly! Any extensions need a new plan
Alterations need the written consent of the other flat owner.
