Lease extensions and freehold purchases (also known as leasehold and collective enfranchisement)

This is a specialist area in which Portner has considerable experience, acting for both landlords and tenants alike. We are able to advise individual tenants in relation to voluntary and statutory lease extensions, as well as groups of tenants and residents' associations who wish to collectively extend their leases or purchase their freehold. We also act for a variety of landlords in these processes, working to ensure all that is necessary is done to safeguard their interests.

We deal not only with the conveyancing aspects and service of the requisite notices but also any litigious issues which may arise whether this be before the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal, the Lands Tribunal or the County Court.
