Selling your lease

Aberdeunant farm house
Aberdeunant is looked after by our tenant farmers National Trust

We own many cottages and other buildings but lease them to a tenant, for varying lengths of time and on various terms and conditions.

Most of our leases are for short periods, usually six or 12 months, and are likely to contain provisions stopping the tenant who owns the lease from transferring the lease to another person. However, we do have some leases for longer periods - up to 99 years, which usually have the provision to stop you transferring the lease to another person without our permission.

If you wish to transfer your lease without incurring legal consequences, you should download our guidance note on selling or transferring your leasehold property.
