Enfranchisement & Lease Extensions

Do you know how long your lease is? How long have you lived in your leasehold property? Leases are a depreciating asset and times and circumstances change. The lease may have been fine when you bought your flat or leasehold house but it may be that the lease now has less than 50 years remaining which could cause a problem when you come to sell.

Are you aware of the legislation available for residential tenants?

If you live in a flat in a block, you could purchase the freehold collectively with the other residents , or even form a right to manage company if you and other flatowners cannot afford or are not able to buy the freehold. You may wish to acquire a longer term lease for your flat

In certain situations, the Landlord has to offer the residents therightof first refusal if the Landlord wishes to sell the freehold of a block of flats.

We can offer advice on the following topics:-

  • Collective enfranchisement
  • Right to manage
  • Right of first refusal
  • Lease extensions
  • Lease variations
  • Lease surrenders
