Flat Lease Extension FAQs

We know that extending a lease can seem like a daunting process – where do you begin? Our leasehold enfranchisement solicitors provide you with the answers.

Please note this lease extension FAQ relates to extending leases of flats (rather than leases of houses – which have separate requirements and processes).

Whilst it can be tempting to try and apply for a lease extension yourself, you should know that leasehold enfranchisement is a complex area of law with numerous pitfalls. Your first step should be to seek legal representation from a professional solicitor well-versed in conducting lease extension claims and leasehold enfranchisement work. You should ask your solicitor whether they are a member of ALEP (the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners).

We have a team of highly experienced leasehold enfranchisement solicitors here at Trethowans who can help you apply for a lease extension. We ensure that all the right boxes are ticked throughout the process and will provide you with the very best advice on how to proceed – contact us today.
