Residential Leasehold Extensions and Management
You may be a management company looking for legal and practical advice on running the company or seeking assistance in dealing with requests from leaseholders to extend their leases. You may need help dealing with lease extensions or licences for consent to carry out works or may be facing a Right to Manage or Enfranchisement application from the leaseholders. You may be a management company facing a challenge through the Lands Tribunal or Court.
You may be a landlord seeking advice and assistance to deal with leaseholder issues or a landlord who needs to be represented separately from their management company on specific issues.
You may be a leaseholder wanting to apply for a lease extension, for consent under the lease, or to take over the running of your management company through the Right to Manage legislation. You may even be looking to acquire the freehold title of your property through Enfranchisement.
Alternatively you may be a land owner setting up a new leasehold scheme who needs long leases drafting and advice on how to manage the scheme.
