We provide expert advice to our clients regarding lease extensions and freehold acquisitions. We act for both Landlords and Leaseholders in the disposal and acquisition of freehold interests (enfranchisement). We also act for leaseholders seeking the right to manage their property in place of their landlord.
There are two routes to extending your lease, the formal route or the informal route. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. The informal route is when the new lease is agreed between the parties, the formal route (statutory route) to extending your lease is more complicated and involves the serving of notices and potentially an application to the first Tier Tribunal.
We can provide free initial advice for all private Landlords and Commercial parties.
