About Enfranchisement Solicitors

Bonallack & Bishop are a proactive and rapidly growing firm of solicitors based in Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset. We have a team of solicitors who specialise in residential lease extension, right to manage company formation and freehold purchase (known as leasehold or collective enfranchisement) both in Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset and throughout the UK. We have been carrying out leasehold enfranchisement and lease extension work for the last 25 years and deal with around 300 to 400 lease extensions every year as well as numerous enfranchisements. We aim to reach settlement in most cases, and, if not, we can arrange representation of our clients at the First Tier PropertyTribunal (previously the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal).

We act for and advise individuals, groups of tenants, small landlords and companies – providing clear lease extension advice and practical solutions. So you can rest assured that we have the expertise and knowledge that are essential when acting on your behalf. If you are a tenant thinking of purchasing your freehold or a lease extension, or a landlord with tenants wanting to take those steps, talk to us first.

We are members of the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners (ALEP) – the specialist organisation for enfranchisement experts and we are on the panel of solicitors kept by the Leasehold Advisory Service website.
