Links to Important Information Other Links * Please remember that the University must consent to Deeds of Trust that secure mortgages against leasehold property. If you are interested in obtaining a loan against your leasehold, it is important to get the lease office involved early on in the process. Failure to do so can result in a delay in the loan process. Loans also include equity loans, lines of credit, and refinances.

**The University recommends that leaseholders hire contractors who comply with the State of Tennessee’s laws for licensing and insurance.  It is the leaseholder’s responsibility to confirm that a contractor meets the State of Tennessee’s requirements.  The University assumes no responsibility or liability for the work performed on leasehold property. A county building permit is required for structures with roofs (call 931-967-0981 for information).
