Lease enfranchisement

Whether you wish to purchase a lease extension or the freehold of your property, we are here to help.
Exisiting legislation gives most leaseholders of flats and houses the right to extend their leases or buy their freeholds providing the original lease was granted for a period in excess of 21 years. It is essential to have a clear understanding of how the value of your property is affected as the lease reduces. We work closely with a small selection of leading independent surveyors who will guide you through the complex process of lease extension to help ensure the process runs smoothly.
New rental legislation affecting landlords is just a year away

With a broad experience in leasehold and leasehold reform, our surveys are able to provide a comprehensive service.

What comes next? We will carry out a valuation of your property in accordance with the RICS Valuation Standards (6th addition)  both on the existing lease and on completion of the extension or enfranchisement. We’ll liaise with your solicitors and work on your behalf to secure the best possible premium.

In the unlikely event that we are unable to reach an agreement with the landlord, the matter may be referred to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal. In such circumstances, we will liaise with solicitors, prepare our valuation and represent you if a hearing is set.
