Partner, Head of Leasehold Enfranchisement

Whatever journey you are planning, we can help.  Our professional team are here to make sure there is no additional or unnecessary stress for you, your family. If your lease has 80 years or less remaining, this may affect your ability to sell and if not addressed can become expensive as the term of the lease gets shorter.

We act for both landlords and tenants advising on the various legal aspects of leasehold enfranchisement law. More specifically, landlord and tenant rights pursuant to The Leasehold Reform Act 1967 (individual lease extension or acquiring the freehold of a leasehold house); The Landlord and Tenant Act 1987 (tenant’s pre-emption rights; landlord’s sale of the freehold to the tenant flat owners pursuant to service of formal notices); The Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 as amended by the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 (individual lease extensions of flats, collective enfranchisement of the freehold of a building and right to manage claims) and all ancillary matters arising from this area of law.  

You are making a significant purchase or sale, and we know you just want to have it done right, quickly and with minimal fuss. 

Our experienced House and Home team are here to ensure your transaction goes as smoothly as possible.  All you want is to move on to the next phase of your journey  quickly, and we can help.

Maybe you found a better deal elsewhere, maybe you are helping a child onto the property ladder - whatever the reason may be, a remortgage will have important consequences for you, your home and your family.

We are here to help along the way and make sure everything goes smoothly.  Our experienced team of professionals know how this decision can affect you and your family too, and aim to make it as stress free as possible.

Whether you are buying someone out, being bought out, or letting others buy in to your property, a transfer of equity can be a stressful proposition.

Whatever the reason for the change, we know you just want to have it done quickly and with minimal fuss.  Our experienced team are here to ensure this first step goes as smoothly as possible and you can quickly move on to the next phase of your journey.
