Enfranchisement

Many leaseholders want to become freeholders of their own property, either because the length of their leases are falling or because they want to take control of the management and maintenance of the buildings in which they live.

Whether you own a house or a flat, we can assist in helping you through the complex process of acquiring the freehold of your home or collectively with other flat owners, to acquire the freehold of your block. Our enfranchisement specialists have a wealth of experience helping clients negotiate reasonable terms, ensuring that all statutory time-limits are met, and where necessary, setting up a company to acquire the freehold.

The law also gives flat owners the right to apply to manage the buildings in which their flat forms a part. If you are a group of flat owners or a residents’ associations seeking to acquire the right to manage your building, our enfranchisement team can assist you.

Manuel Swaden is a member of the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners (ALEP).
