Buying the Freehold

When it comes to buying the freehold of your block of flats, our lease extension solicitors are here to provide you with the legal support and guidance you need.

How can I acquire the freehold of my flat?

It is normally not possible to buy the freehold of just your particularly individual flat – this normally is achieved by you and your fellow flat owners collectively acquiring the freehold of the building in which your flats are situated. There are ordinarily two options available to you when it comes to buying the freehold of your building:

• Collective Enfranchisement
• Accepting a ‘Right of First Refusal’

How do I begin purchasing the freehold?

The first step to purchasing the freehold is to seek legal advice from a solicitor well versed in leasehold enfranchisement. Buying the freehold is rarely a straightforward process; our leasehold enfranchisement solicitors can guide you through the process and will make you aware of all your legal rights regarding the purchase of a freehold.
