Why become an ALEP member?

ALEP is the only association representing professionals working in the leasehold enfranchisement sector. The Association exists to ensure that leaseholders and freeholders can access the services of competent enfranchisement professionals.


ALEP promotes best practice

The Association is non-political and acts in an independent capacity to ensure the quality and integrity of its membership, with the aim of spreading best practice in all matters concerning leasehold.

ALEP’s membership encompasses businesses that work with both freeholders and leaseholders, with the common aim of providing expert advice and support to their clients.

ALEP promotes best practice by vetting individual barristers and organisations to ensure they have the requisite expertise in leasehold enfranchisement, so that leaseholders and freeholders can contact ALEP members with confidence.

Membership of ALEP thereby acts as a badge of assurance so that leaseholders and freeholders can be confident that they are employing professionals with the right level of expertise in handling potentially complex transactions. 


Over the years ALEP has been at the forefront of leasehold enfranchisement. Founded with an aim to bring together enfranchisement practitioners, with a view to fostering best practice in the sector, the Association has gone on to become the go-to source for expert opinion in all things leasehold. ALEP now has more than 260 member organisations – and counting – which equates to over 1,200 professionals.

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.
