Sheffield Leasehold Enfranchisement

Leasehold enfranchisement, also known as ‘freehold purchase’ or ‘collective enfranchisement’ allows leaseholders to buy the freehold of their leasehold flat or apartment. If you live in Sheffield and you are interested in the enfranchisement process, our expert lease extension and lease enfranchisement solicitors can help you, leaving you with more control over your property.


Here are 3 reasons why you will need a specialist solicitor when you’re looking to enfranchise your block:

• Lease enfranchisement is a tricky area of law which normal property solicitors are unlikely to have experience or an adequate understanding of. The tight deadlines and complex legislation involved make the process particularly complicated. In fact, the vast majority of property solicitors rarely if ever, conduct lease extensions, let alone enfranchisement cases

• It is almost certain that your freeholder will have instructed a specialist solicitor – so it is really important that you receive legal advice of equally high quality

• A specialist solicitor will fully understand the whole process – and in particular be able to communicate effectively with your surveyor and project manager to make the process as swift and successful as possible.


If you choose the team here at Bonallack & Bishop to help you enfranchise your block, you can be sure that you are instructing genuine specialists in their field.
