The technical and complex world of enfranchisement

Leasehold Enfranchisement

Here at Greenwoods, our team has extensive experience in this area of law, acting for both landlords and tenants in lease extension claims, collective enfranchisement claims and Right to Manage claims under the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 and house claims under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967.

Our head of department, Chi Collins, is well known in this field for her intricate knowledge and approach and acted for the leaseholders in the Sloane Stanley v Mundy case in the Court of Appeal.

Our technical expertise will allow us to guide you through this complex process to achieve the best outcome for you, because extending the term or buying the freehold are not the only issues at stake in these transactions.
