Lease Extensions

Lease Extensions & Collective Enfranchisement

This area of law is complex with many potential procedural pitfalls and frequently involves obtaining expert valuation evidence.

Tenants of certain long leases of flats have statutory rights:

  • To acquire the freehold (with other lessees) which is often called ‘Collective Enfranchisement’.
  • To the grant of a lease extension.

We act for tenants and landlords in this area.  Helping negotiate or alternatively advance or respond to applications for Collective Enfranchisement or the grant of a lease extension.  We have contacts with specialist valuation surveyors who can assist in setting you on the right path from the outset and also with negotiations with the surveyor for the other party.
