The expert knowledge you need with the personal service you expect

Leasehold enfranchisement specialists

We have an experienced team of RICS registered valuers specialising in the valuation and negotiation required for leasehold enfranchisement, the collective acquisition of freeholds in flat developments. Acting for either the leaseholder or the freeholder, we operate throughout London, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Surrey, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire.

The Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 gives leaseholders (also known as the tenants), the right to join forces to buy the freehold of their building. Collective enfranchisement gives tenants more control over the management of their building, compared to traditional leases where the freeholder (also known as the landlord), is responsible for managing the property.

If you are looking to apply for collective enfranchisement, speak to a member of our specialist team.

  • Initial consultation 
  • Preparation and serving of notices 
  • Valuation report
  • Negotiations and liaising with the freeholder 


We act and advise on


  • The Right to Enfranchise (RTE)
  • Purchasing freeholds (under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967)

Impressed with the quality of their expertise

Caroline instructed Michael Carr after needing advice with regard to the lease terms on her property, she kindly provided some feedback on her experience:

“In my role as Chairman of a PR agency, I work with many other businesses. The ones that stand out are those that listen carefully to the brief, respond with pace and precision, go the extra mile and do it all with a light and human touch. Kempton Carr tick all those boxes. I was so impressed with the quality of their expertise and their speed of response to my rather urgent request. I have very high standards for delivery and Kempton Carr surpassed them”
