The firm is a member of ALEP (the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners).
The field of residential leaseholds (often called ‘leasehold enfranchisement’) is a complex area of law. The processes involved in the exercise of such rights are often subject to strict time limits and a failure to comply with those time limits or to properly understand the procedures can result in a loss of opportunity or financial loss.
It is important that flat owners, landlords and developers secure the right advice at an early stage to maximise their position.
In the case of flats, leaseholders’ rights comprise:
Collective freehold acquisitions
The right of first refusal
The right to manage
For houses leaseholders can either:
Extend their leases
Acquire the freehold to their house
We act for leaseholders, landlords and developers so we understand and empathise with the different perspectives and angles from which the process can be approached.
