A fair deal for leaseholders

Nowadays the property rights of residential leaseholders, for lease extension or enfranchisement, are stronger than ever. But the complexity of the law, and the procedures involved, can make securing those rights a daunting and stressful prospect.

Our aim, as specialist valuation surveyors, is to provide the professional expertise, dedication and support that every leaseholder needs to achieve a fair deal, when extending the lease or acquiring the freehold of their home.

With our support, many lessees have saved twenty-five per cent or more off the freeholder’s initial offer. If you are a leaseholder wanting to buy the freehold or extend the lease on your property, or a group of leaseholders seeking collective enfranchisement, we’re on your side.

We have now saved our clients a total of £88.230 million — on average, more than a quarter of the landlord’s initial offer!
