The original developer of New Crane Wharf was Heron Homes Limited. In 1995, sixty seven of the lessees formed New Crane Wharf Freehold Ltd (NCWFL), to purchase the freehold from Heron Homes. Since then, further lessees have become shareholders.

NCWFL has the responsibility of maintaining the structure of the buildings and providing the services as detailed in the leases.

All shareholders of NCWFL are people who have leases on flats within New Crane Wharf.

Any leaseholder can become a shareholder, and thereby own a stake in the freehold of the building. Shareholders may extend their leases to 999 years and receive a reduction in their ground rents.
