Helping you manage your property
With a strong working experience of this niche legal area, Giles Wilson can help you and other leaseholders purchase the freehold of your building, in certain circumstances.
Collective Enfranchisement is the legal right of long leaseholders of flats to act together to purchase the freehold of their building, provided that certain criteria can be met. The collective group of leaseholders would then acquire the freehold of their building and would collectively become the Landlord under their respective leases.
The process requires an in-depth knowledge of the statutory provisions governing the rights of long leaseholders. It is essential that you seek professional advice as soon as possible before starting the claim, so that the process is followed correctly.
The process will often involve a surveyor, who will be able to advise on matters of the premium and potential settlement options.
With experience acting for a wide range of residential clients (both leaseholders and current freeholders) our dedicated Collective Enfranchisement solicitors can help you prepare your claim. Our solicitors can ensure a smooth, successful process, keeping you informed every step of the way.
