Collective Enfranchisment (Freehold purchase)

Collective Enfranchisment (Freehold purchase)

We are well versed in acting on your behalf in a collective enfranchisement claim which enables you and your fellow leaseholders to buy the freehold of your building.  We will lead you through the process, liaise with your solicitor throughout, provide a comprehensive valuation report and negotiate on your behalf, as well as represent you at the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal if necessary.

Whether you are a leaseholder, intermediate leaseholder or freeholder we can assist you through the process and act on your behalf to achieve the desired result.

In brief a group of leaseholders will qualify if:

  • Half of the total number of flats in the building must participate.
  • The non-residential element must not exceed 25%.
  • Lastly there is no residency requirement and there is no two year ownership rule as there is for a lease extension claim.

This is not a full list of all the requirements, your solicitor will investigate the qualifying criteria fully.

We can provide you with contact details for specialist solicitors who can assist you in this process.

Please note that the cost of acquiring the freehold increases when the lease drops below 80 years due to the inclusion of marriage value.
