Our friendly team of expert leasehold and enfranchisement solicitors offer straight forward legal advice in this complex area of law.

The services our leasehold and enfranchisement team offer include;

  • Buying and selling freeholds
  • Lease Extensions
  • Collective enfranchisement (where a number of tenants wish to buy the freehold)
  • Leasehold Development Permissions
  • New Lease Drafting

If you own a leasehold property, purchasing the freehold or extending the lease can be a vital way to maintain or increase its value. Because the land is owned separately by a landlord, it can be hard to sell a leasehold property or raise a mortgage for it.

Leasehold enfranchisement can raise the value of your property and offer you more security. Whether you are a landlord or an individual tenant or part of a group, we can advise you of your rights.

Our Leasehold team are members of ALEP - an association of professionals who specialise in lease extension, freehold acquisition and leasehold enfranchisement and ARMA - The leading trade association for residential leasehold management.
