With long experience working with many of London’s institutional landlords, we can draw on deep experience of leaseholds and freeholds. Whatever you need, we’re a partner you can trust in all of the following areas:

Leasehold Enfranchisement

Extending a lease or purchasing a freehold, is covered by the legal process known as leasehold enfranchisement. There are an estimated 5 million leasehold titles in England, including 1.4 million in London alone. The statutory regime which governs this area of law is complex, requiring expert guidance.

Our specialist enfranchisement lawyers advise landlords and leaseholders on a wide range of claims. Whether making house claims, collective claims, rights of first refusal or right to manage claims, our dedicated team has extensive experience.

How we can help

We keep it simple. Our expert advice is clear and jargon free. Our enfranchisement solicitors can assist with:

  • Buying your freehold
  • Extending the lease of your house
  • Lease extensions of individual flats
  • Buying the freehold of a block of flats (collective enfranchisement)
  • Right to manage claims
  • Court and tribunal proceedings
  • Rights of first refusal
  • Property management and investment
  • Advice regarding current leasehold reform proposals
