Leasehold Enfranchisement

Leaseholders may eventually find that their leases are becoming ever shorter in length to the point where they must consider extending them.

There are very good reasons why a flat owner with a lease having around 80 years remaining should consider taking action to ensure a lease extension is granted.

There are four areas within the Leasehold Enfranchisement that Oliver Fisher can assist with:

·         Collective Enfranchisement – how Leaseholders can compulsorily acquire their freehold

·         Individual Lease Extension – how individuals can extend the lease of their flats

·         Right to Manage – how Leaseholders can take over the management of the building

·         Right of First Refusal – the Freeholder’s obligation to offer the freehold to Leaseholders

Oliver Fisher’s Enfranchisement Team undertakes a broad range of work in this specialist area, dealing with large blocks of flats through to smaller flat conversions, principally in West and Central London.
