We have wide experience of advising landlords on collective enfranchisement claims, lease extensions, freehold acquisitions and rights of first refusal.

Avoiding enfranchisement rights

We have a particular knowledge of how to implement schemes to avoid enfranchisement rights arising in the first place and are uniquely placed to help clients develop and implement robust strategies for dealing with enfranchisement issues.
