We help numerous groups of leaseholders to collectively enfranchise or buy their freeholds. This is the process by which you can through compulsory purchase force the freeholder to sell you the freehold.
The majority of leaseholders decide to purchase the freehold in order to run their own affairs and to have direct control on the management and maintenance of the building. It is also another way to obtain a lease extension if lease terms are low.
Before embarking on the process you must have professional valuation and legal advice. Most freeholders are unwilling to relinquish their freeholds and the process is therefore problematic. There are a number of barriers to enfranchisement which the professionals can help you with.
Our legal and valuation teams will ensure you get off to the correct start, advise if enfranchisement is possible, avoid unnecessary delays and costs and manage the whole process for you from start to finish.
