The law in the UK is not supportive of people who assist, however unwillingly, those they love who want to die. Although such wishes are often borne out of suffering years of intractable pain or disability, assisting the suicide of another remains a criminal...
Leasehold Enfranchisement is the statutory process by which qualifying tenants on long leases have the right to renew the term of their lease or the freehold of their building.
Other related statutory rights of qualifying tenants also include the right of first refusal whereby a landlord is obliged to offer their interest to tenants first before disposing of it and the right of tenants to manage their building.
These are notoriously complex and specialist areas of law and we advise you seek professional advice before taking action.
Our Leasehold Enfranchisement team is highly experienced in these matters and acts for tenants, residents’ associations and landlords alike. The team has particular experience of central London properties. The team offers clear and expert advice on both the non-contentious and contentious elements of the process endeavouring to make it as simple and smooth-running as possible.
Our services cover:
- Statutory Lease Renewal/Extension
- Collective Enfranchisement
- Leasehold Houses
- The Right to Manage
- The Right of First Refusal
- Alternative Procedures
