Enfranchisement

This is often a complex area that requires specialist legal skills and an attention to detail. Our clients receive first class legal and commercial expertise on all types of enfranchisement work.

We possess an in-depth knowledge of property acquisitions involving high value London properties and estates, especially when advising on acquiring and extending a lease, joining in an enfranchisement claim or selling a property with the benefit of such claims.

We advise and support our clients on both contentious and non-contentious enfranchisement work. We advise both landlords and tenants of their rights in respect of applications to acquire the freehold of leasehold houses, lease extensions of both flats and houses and collective enfranchisement of blocks of flats.

In addition, we act for many residents’ associations and groups of tenants who wish to acquire collectively their freeholds whether by collective enfranchisement or voluntary purchase.

Our lawyers have significant experience in handling matters in the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal, Lands Tribunal, High Court and the Court of Appeal.
