Leasehold Enfranchisement

Leasehold enfranchisement, sometimes known as collective enfranchisement is the right for leaseholders to join together (using the rights of the Leasehold Reform Act 1993) to make their landlord to sell the freehold to their group of flats to them. This area of law applies only to residential property. By purchasing the freehold, you become both landlord and tenant and can extend the lease of your property by granting yourself a new lease of up to 999 years. Leasehold enfranchisment differs from Leasehold extension which both matters are explained on this website.
