12.2 Freehold units

The individually-owned units in a commonhold are freehold, and their title is registered at the Land Registry. The unit-holders have the same full powers of disposition as any other freeholder, with two exceptions: firstly, a lease may not be granted of a residential commonhold unit for a term exceeding seven years; and secondly, there are limitations on dispositions of interests in part-units1. A commonhold unit is not liable to forfeiture in the event of non-payment of money due to the commonhold association or for some other breach of the rules of the commonhold2.
