Leasehold Enfranchisement

If you own a leasehold property and wish to renew your lease or buy the freehold, you must go through the leasehold enfranchisement solicitors in London. That allows qualified tenants the legal right to renew their lease or purchase the freehold on their leasehold property if the qualification conditions are met in line with legislation.

At Crown Law Solicitors LLP, leasehold enfranchisement solicitors work with clients to extend or purchase a share of the freehold of a property. The legal definition for this process is called Enfranchisement. You will require the advice of an expert property lawyer to advise and guide you on the necessary steps and action that must be taken.

Our enfranchisement solicitors’ services play a role in ensuring your rights have protected at all times, and you secure the part or full freehold that you intend. Whether the holder of the freehold has approached you or you wish to approach them, Crown Law Solicitors and our property team have the experience to guide and assist you.

London’s No.1 leasehold enfranchisement solicitors, we provide clear and experienced guidance on both non-contentious and contentious aspects of the procedure, intending to make it as easy and smooth-running as possible.

In most situations, before contacting a solicitor, you will establish an agreement with your landlord to agree on and describe the conditions of you purchasing and acquiring a portion of the freehold of a property. In other cases, it may be impossible to reach an agreement with the landlord; in this case, you must be aware of your legal rights and retain the services of an expert to represent and negotiate conditions on your behalf.

Enfranchisement by agreement is the quickest, cheapest, and easiest method to get your part of the freehold, but if this is not possible or does not occur, Crown Law Solicitors will advise you and safeguard your interests at all times.

We provide services for simple, and complex leasehold enfranchisement solicitors matters in London. Our expert lawyers will provide you with effective advice, so you understand your rights and the actions that must be taken to achieve your goal.

Our services

We provide enfranchisement solicitors services and legal assistance for all leasehold enfranchisement difficulties in London.

Statutory Lease Renewal/Extension

Leasehold renters who meet certain criteria have the option of extending their lease for an extra 90 years (for flats). We can walk you through the whole statutory lease renewal procedure, including serving a legal notice, making securing a lease extension straightforward and fast.

Collective Enfranchisement

Depending on the conditions, leasehold tenants in apartment buildings may be eligible to purchase the freehold of their building. That is known as collective enfranchisement, and it may be a difficult and time-consuming process that requires a large number of individuals to collaborate efficiently. Our leasehold enfranchisement solicitors have extensive expertise to work with a smooth & quick process. 

Alternative Methods

Leaseholders can also employ a variety of less well-known methods, such as Compulsory Acquisition by Tenants of their Landlord’s Interests under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987. When there are specific concerns, such as the freeholder neglecting to adequately maintain the building, these can be highly valuable measures to rely on.
