Freeholds & Leaseholds

Leasehold Enfranchisement

Buying your freehold or new lease under the Leasehold Reform Acts 1967 or 1993 can be daunting, but not so bad as you might think with the help of Langley-Taylor's specialist team headed by Jennifer Ellis. Jennifer is an acknowledged expert in this field and her friendly, professional advice has helped innumerable people through the minefield of buying their freehold or negotiating a new lease.

She has appeared many times before the Leasehold Valuation Tribunals, although she prefers to settle claims if that is possible. Jennifer represented the Lessees in the first flat enfranchisement case on the Grosvenor Estate.
This was a landmark case, widely reported in the property and legal press.

Not all cases end up in a tribunal hearing. The majority are settled, with the consequent saving of professional costs, before the matter gets to Tribunal.

It is a popular misconception that a valuer can only act for Landlords or for Tenants. Jennifer believes this is simply not the case.

So, whether you are a Landlord or a Tenant we provide you with practical advice as to the best way by which to achieve the purchase or sale of your freehold or long lease.
