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. Few property solicitors have much experience or any real understanding about it.The tight deadlines and complex legislation involved make the process particularly complicated. In fact, the vast majority of property solicitors rarely if ever, come across 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 make sure that you get similarly specialist legal advice

• A specialist solicitor will fully understand the whole process – and in particular be able to communicate effectively with your surveyor and any project manager choose to appoint (quite important with bigger blocks) to make the process as swift and successful as possible.
