Buying a Freehold and Extending a Lease
Leasehold enfranchisement is a complicated area of law, which is why many firms, though they may provide general services in property transactions, do not handle freehold enfranchisement or lease extensions.
Housing and Property Law Partnership (HPLP) is a specialist law firm located in central London that focuses exclusively on property law. We provide specialist expertise for those wishing to buy their freeholds or extend their leases.
Defining Leasehold Enfranchisement
Our solicitors explain key terms and procedures in plain English so our 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. Freehold ownership gives leaseholders control over repairs, service charges and management decisions.
If you are unhappy with how your block is managed, then you may wish to consider buying your freehold. Our solicitors can provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision.
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 missing one of them means you may lose your right to sell or buy your 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.

In 2012, HPLP came second in the National Enfranchisement and Right To Manage awards and was "Highly Commended." The awards were sponsored by News on the Block and Tanfield Chambers.
