Why join ALEP?

ALEP is the only association representing professionals working in the leasehold enfranchisement sector. If you would like to join ALEP and are a managing agent, project manager, solicitor or valuer, then we welcome an application from your organisation. Barristers may make an individual application to join.

ALEP membership

ALEP welcomes applications from experienced practitioners. Full membership criteria can be found in the ALEP Constitution, but in summary, applicants must: 

  • In the case of managing agents, project managers, solicitors or valuers be able to demonstrate that, on an annual basis, they initiate at least two or more collective enfranchisement projects totalling at least 20 or more flats (or deal with a similar number of clients by way of statutory lease extensions).
  • In the case of barristers be able to demonstrate that they have dealt with at least five cases at an appropriate level relating to enfranchisement in any given year.
  • Provide two satisfactory references from clients and/or fellow practitioners relating to significant completed projects.
  • Provide a copy of Professional Indemnity Certificate.

The annual membership fee for organisations is £515+ VAT.

The annual membership fee for an individual barrister is £160 + VAT.

ALEP members are able to register additional office(s) for £180 + VAT per office, per year.

NOTE: An additional office is one which makes available the services of an enfranchisement professional full time at the additional site(s). The address must be an actual (i.e. not virtual) office.
