Extending your Lease or Buying your Landlord's Freehold

Many owners of long leasehold houses have the right to be able to force their landlord to sell them the freehold of their property. Owners of long leasehold flats may have the right to force their landlords to sell them a longer lease. We are able to advise you on all aspects of these processes. We can tell you whether or not you qualify in order to compel such sales and we will then guide you through the highly complex procedures, including the service of correct notices on your landlords, liaising with your surveyors and valuers and attending the Court or Tribunal where necessary. Once terms are settled or agreed, we will deal with the transfer of the freehold or the terms of the new lease, as appropriate.

We are also able to advise landlords who are facing such claims from their tenants.
