Lease Extensions & Leasehold Enfranchisement

Whether you are a Landlord or a Tenant, at Herrington Carmichael LLP we have a wealth of knowledge to help guide you through the process.

Introduced to restore the historical imbalance between the inherently disadvantaged Tenant and the monopolistic Landlord, laws on leasehold enfranchisement now provide for a breadth of collective and individual rights.

Our Landlord & Tenant services:
We offer a full range of services for both Landlords and Tenants in relation to:

  • Lease extensions of flats and houses (both under the statutory procedure and by private treaty)
  • Enfranchisement of leasehold houses
  • Collective Enfranchisement and Rights to Manage for groups of tenants
  • Rights of First Refusal

It’s important to understand the rights available to you if you are a Tenant to ensure you are able to maximise the value of your asset, and it is equally important for Landlords to be aware of what rights their tenants have to ensure that they deal with their reversionary estate in the best way possible. We would suggest that you contact us to discuss your options at the earliest opportunity to ensure that you take the best steps forward in realising your property value. We offer initial consultations free of charge and are always happy to host video calls for individuals, landlords or groups of tenants (or in person when permitted) to explain the process and how we can help.
