Welcome to our new website - much of your content is still there - and hopefully still in the same place - but with a much fresher, modern look.

Please browse this site; you will find much information that should help you and encourage you either as a Tenant-Custodian and prospective Tenant-Custodian of the National Trust.

Contact us if you wish to join the association. 

Your vote counts -

To vote to support our Resolution and help to keep our funding please visit the AGM voting page here and do something great today!

You will have just got your
 National Trust AGM papers 
and amongst them is a request for you to give your proxy vote to the Chairman if you are not attending the AGM. Perhaps you could consider this year rather than giving it to the Chairman would you give it to TANT? So you can support our motion & those of other  tenants. So cross out the chairman, write in TANT's representative Cristina George, fill in the rest and send to 

PO Box 677, Redhill, RH1 9BR 


If you have a lease that is for more than 20 years ,usually 49 years with a possible 50 year extension,  it is important that you look carefully at the lease as there may be onerous rent reviews after 25/49/ 75 years.

The Ground Rent could rise to a substantial figure. You may not have been advised of this when you purchased your lease.

There may be remedies for you and please contact us if you require some guidance.

If you have an out of hours emergency - for example: heating breakdown, roof damage, or another problem that requires an immediate solution (but not a downed TV arial!), then please follow these three steps:-
  • Ring the numbers at the back of your TENANTS HANDBOOK - if you have any, or the even the handbook.
  • In line with the HOUSING POLICY ring a local tradesperson to get the job done and recharge this to the National Trust.
  • If all else fails, please ring TANT's HELPLINE: 0845 463 3563 anytime, any day and we will try and assist you.
