Leasehold Enfranchisement

In respect of houses, we specialise in representing tenants in their negotiations to secure the freehold of their residential property under the terms of the LEASEHOLD REFORM ACT 1967. We provide valuations, undertake negotiations, and, if required, will represent tenants should the process proceed to the FIRST-TIER TRIBUNAL PROPERTY CHAMBER (RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY). In these circumstances we will deal not only with the matter of the freehold, but also the reasonableness of the landlord costs.

We also provide valuations for the premiums required to extend leases to flats, under the LEASEHOLD REFORM, HOUSING & URBAN DEVELOPMENT ACT 1993.

We are able to advise more widely in respect of the above Acts, so please do contact us.
