Enfranchisement & lease extensions

Our specialist team has unrivalled experience in the disposal of freeholds and lease extensions, having worked on several leading cases that have established important legal principles on enfranchisement. We offer our clients pragmatic, clear advice in this complex area of law.

Our team is a market leader and deals with a substantial number of enfranchisement claims per year. We act for some of London’s largest urban estates and have been involved in some of the leading cases in this field.

Our overall experience enables us to advise individuals as to their own enfranchisement rights. We will take you through the process required from beginning to end.

A key aspect of an enfranchisement claim is the value payable by a tenant to a landlord for a lease extension or acquisition of the freehold and we are experienced in liaising closely with whichever valuers are instructed to deal with that element of a claim.

An enfranchisement claim will often be a necessity and our focus is on ensuring that the process involved enhances and protects the value of what in many cases is a primary asset.

The legislation surrounding enfranchisement is complex and prescriptive. I will often be immersed in a text book so as to untangle an issue or an idiosyncrasy in the procedure with a view to being able to present a way forward.
