Extending Residential Leases

Leasehold Enfranchisement

Sometimes you may not be able to reach an agreement with your landlord regarding your residential lease extension. In these cases, you may want to consider the Enfranchisement route.

Statutory rights, also known as Enfranchisement, exist for tenants who have owned their property for more than two years to extend their residential leases by 90 years on top of their existing term – at zero ground rent. There are strict timetables and procedures to follow and our lease extension solicitors are skilled in helping both landlords and tenants in this process.

If you would like to know more then contact our specialist lease extension solicitors and we will be happy to help.

If there are many leaseholders involved, or if terms cannot be easily agreed, Leasehold Enfranchisement can be very complicated and difficult to negotiate. With the skilled help of solicitors however it need not be difficult or stressful – the key is making sure you avoid a Valuation Tribunal, which can be costly and time consuming. Getting the right advice from the outset with experienced legal professionals is very important.

This includes representing clients in Leasehold Valuation Tribunals if required – however we will always work hard to ensure this is avoided if possible. We concentrate on providing uncomplicated, practical and friendly advice to both Landlords and Tenants.
