  1.       Leasehold:

A leasehold is a place you are given the privilege to utilize a property or part of a property for a broadened period time.

Independently they each have their own rent, yet all in all they will claim the entire building and be the freeholder. The benefit of this course of action is that it gives more control to the leaseholders, particularly when considering mutual running expenses or the augmentation of a rent.

  1.       Commonhold:

This was another kind of possession set up in 2002, however, has neglected to take off in the manner in which those individuals anticipated. It was intended to modernize possession and rather than there being a leaseholder and a freeholder, the level proprietors, all things considered, claimed everything.
