Leasehold enfranchisement is a complicated, distinct area of property law. That is why many firms, though they provide general services in property transactions, do not handle freehold enfranchisement or lease extensions.
Housing and Property Law Partnership (HPLP), a boutique law firm located in central London, focuses exclusively on property law for this very reason. We provide the specialist expertise one needs when wishing to buy the freehold or extend a lease. Our firm offers tailored, individualised services at competitive prices for landlords and leaseholders throughout London, the Home Counties and Southeast England.
Defining Leasehold Enfranchisement
Our firm explains key terms and procedures in plain English, so clients always understand what their options are. Leasehold enfranchisement, or freehold enfranchisement, is the process by which leaseholders buy the freehold of their block of flats. Ownership gives tenants control over repairs, service charges and other management concerns.
If you are unhappy with how your block is managed, buying your freehold could be a viable option. Our qualified solicitors provide the information and legal services you need to pursue this process.
Why Choose HPLP?
Our firm is recognised for the leadership and expertise we have in this field of property law. There are many statutory deadlines and dates to follow and missing any one of them means you may lose your right to sell or buy the freehold. As accredited members of the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners (ALEP) and noted on the government's LEASE website, we are familiar with all relevant legislation and work directly with clients to ensure they make informed decisions and follow all proper procedures.
