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.

TANT has submitted a motion to the National Trust AGM!

Thank you for all your help in supporting our resolution asking the National Trust to continue funding their tenants association.

We gathered over 120 signatures - over 70 more than we needed - and thanks to you all we have now submitted the resolution for consideration by the members at this year's National Trust AGM.

If you are a full member of the National Trust, please look out for your voting papers that will arrive in early September and if you could continue your valued input by ticking the box supporting our continued funding and posting back to the Trust we would be very grateful.



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.
