Leasehold Enfranchisement

Leasehold enfranchisement entitles leaseholders to collectively purchase the freehold of the property. The property experts at Brady Solicitors can help you with the complex enfranchisement process. 

Helping leaseholders through the process of enfranchisement

As a leaseholder in a block of flats you’ll no doubt be aware that you and your fellow residential leaseholders are legally entitled to collectively purchase the freehold of your block – known as a collective enfranchisement. 

Perhaps unsurprisingly, this can be a complex process with the potential for hiccups along the way, particularly if the freeholder decides to mount a strong defence. However, owning your freehold can have significant benefits to you, such as being able to increase your lease length, gaining maximium control over the management of your building and it generally increase the value of your property.

I was very satisfied with Brady Solicitors. They were very helpful and if I did not understand things they were always there to help. I would definitely recommend them to everyone.



I am very happy with the way Brady Solicitors helped me to extend my lease. They made the process easy, clarifying the various stages, giving me advice on my options and handling them professionally.



Many thanks for your help, professional advice and calm nerves. I will be recommending you to anyone I know needing a good solicitor buying or selling or indeed needing a lease extension.



Brady’s has recently carried out multiple lease extensions, with mine included. These have taken place in good time, and I have been informed of the various steps of progress in a pleasant and knowledgeable manner. Many thanks.
