The key to a smooth transition

When faced with this notoriously intricate area of property law, making informed decisions relating to enfranchisement as a landlord can seem a challenge. We have the specialist knowledge to help you see your way forward with extensions, as well as purchases.

Specialist attention from start to finish

We know enfranchisement inside out so are well placed to help you find the right valuer and advise on: 

  • Lease extensions
  • Flat block purchases by groups of lessees
  • House freehold purchases, as well as Rights of First Refusal and Right to Manage

If you’re buying a property with a short lease, we’ll help you get everything in place to extend the lease as smoothly as possible. Plus we offer a complete service from the drafting of notices through to representation at the First Tier Tribunal (formerly the LVT). 

Wherever possible we’ll help you avoid litigation. However, if a dispute is unavoidable, our experience in contentious enfranchisement means you can be confident you’ll have the right barrister to represent you.
