Birketts’ Leasehold Enfranchisement Team comprises specialists across all areas of statutory and voluntary lease extensions and enfranchisements.

Birketts provides full service advice to landlords and tenants in relation to enfranchisement. This covers:

  • lease extensions
  • acquiring/disposing of the freehold of a block of flats
  • leasehold houses
  • right to manage.

We know that one size does not fit all and whilst following a statutory route may be appropriate in some cases, a voluntary route will be better in others. We can advise you on the best method for your circumstances.

We understand that the position in relation to these areas can be different depending on if you are a landlord or a tenant and so we have set out more information about our service on our sub pages.
