What Are Leasehold Properties?

You do not own the land on which a leasehold property is situated, but you do have the right to use and occupy the property. Rather, the land is rented for many years, sometimes decades, from the landowner. While you own the building or house, the land it’s on is rented under a lease agreement. This lease specifies how long you can use the property and often includes conditions for use and maintenance. At the end of the lease term, the property rights usually revert back to the landowner.
