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.
