What is Leasehold Enfranchisement?
Leasehold enfranchisement includes the processes of lease extension, freehold acquisition and correction of management problems within leasehold properties. ALEP exists to ensure that practitioners involved in this sector adhere to an agreed level of conduct and service.
Membership of this professional association is a badge of assurance to leaseholders and freeholders that they can be sure of a consistently high level of service, integrity and professionalism.
The Association is non-political and acts in an independent capacity to ensure the quality and integrity of its membership in pursuit of best practice in all matters concerning leasehold.
