Extending a leasehold can be a confusing but important part of home ownership.
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.
