Enfranchisement & Lease Extension - A User’s Guide Live at Your Desk
Acting for flat owners ‘extending’ a flat lease or making a claim for collective enfranchisement, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993, can be fraught with complexity and potential pitfalls for the unwary.
