Thomas Lumsden, John Spence and Lee Quickenden, have extensive experience in leasehold matters acting for landlords, tenants and residents associations.
We deal with collective enfranchisement and lease extensions under both the 1993 Act in relation to flats, and 1967 Act in relation to houses. The Team’s expertise covers “voluntary” lease extensions, where the freeholder and the leaseholder agree the terms of a lease extension outside of the statutory regime, as well as complicated “section 5” disposals of the freehold.
We have developed an excellent reputation for providing effective and proactive advice not just on local matters in Kent and the South East, but also lease extensions in Prime Central London, where the premiums can be substantial, and the processes complex.
Our Team’s specialist areas include Right to Manage applications on behalf of leaseholders and freeholders, as well as landlord and tenant disputes and litigation of all types.
