Extending your Lease / Buying a Freehold

Many homeowners wish to extend their lease or buy the freehold of their house. This process can be complex but our expert lawyers are well placed to guide you through the experience.

Many flats and apartments, and some houses, in large cities are owned with a leasehold interest and the length of the lease will affect the value and saleability of your home.

Many of our clients therefore seek to extend their lease of their flat or buy the freehold of their house to protect the value of this important asset.

Our market leading team has been advising individuals, freeholders and leading  urban estates for many years and is ideally placed to guide you through the process from beginning to end of:

  • Extending your lease including negotiating with the freeholder to agree the right terms, liaising with the valuers in their negotiations to secure the right price and ensuring that you meet your deadlines
  • Buying the freehold of your home providing you with peace of mind
  • Collective Enfranchisement claims for groups of tenants who wish to purchase the freehold of their apartment block.

The process can be complex and challenging, with plenty of scope for error, so taking expert legal advice from our expert enfranchisement lawyers will ensure that you get the result you require.
