Leasehold enfranchisement is the process of buying the freehold to a house that is currently subject to a long lease. Flat owners can extend their lease or join in a collective purchase with their neighbours to buy the freehold of the building as a whole. A leasehold property can be a home, an investment or both. A lease is a wasting asset but our specialists can help leaseholders to use their statutory enfranchisement rights to maintain or enhance the value of their investment. We can also advise landlords facing compulsory acquisition claims to ensure they receive the full compensation to which they are entitled for the loss of their interest. Our expert team guides those bringing or facing leasehold enfranchisement claims on key areas such as: Extending the length of the term of a lease of a flat by 90 years Collective purchase of the freehold of a building Individual purchase of a leasehold house Freehold reversion sales and tenants’ rights of first refusal Our lawyers handle the enfranchisement process from inception to completion and all steps along the way, including representation in the Tribunal or Courts as necessary. Our team also works closely with some of the best expert valuation surveyors in the field and can introduce clients to a valuer if required.
