The Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners (ALEP) brings together barristers, managing agents, project managers, solicitors and valuers working in the leasehold sector under one, all-encompassing professional membership organisation.
Leasehold enfranchisement is a complex issue, which requires the services of professionals who are qualified and competent in dealing with intricacies it presents.
Through a rigorous vetting process, ALEP ensures its member firms have proven positive results in this sector, thereby providing the public - be they leaseholder or freeholder - with reassurance that they will receive a consistently high level of service, integrity and professionalism.
ALEP, which is not an advice service, was established in 2007 in response to concerns raised by owners of leasehold properties who wanted reassurance that the people they were dealing with were reputable. Freeholders also require this reassurance.
Another aim of the Association is to facilitate communication between practitioners; since its launch, ALEP has not only opened up dialogue within the sector, but also provided valuable input into government consultations and offered counsel and guidance on leasehold and enfranchisement legislation.

'We won once'... win twice at ALEP Annual Quiz
‘We won once...' were crowned winners of ALEP’s 4th annual Quiz Night.
The team, which last won in 2015, was made up of representatives from Trowers and Hamlins.
ALEP held an evening of Brainteasers at Forge, Bank where nine teams battled it out over six rounds on questions from general knowledge, word facts, famous faces, food and drink, sport and London trivia!
Last year’s winners, ‘Wisdom of Wilsons' were unable to hold onto their title and a tense tie-break saw three teams clamour [not] to win the losers' wooden spoons.
The quiz was once again supported by Kerry London which kindly donated the top raffle prize of a champagne brunch at The Landmark.
The raffle, which was also generously supported by Bishop & Sewell, Leasehold Solutions, Wilsons, Seddons and Robsons, raised over £300 for Cancer Research.
Next event: ALEP on the Town - Thursday 25 May.
