Introduction

Leasehold enfranchisement is an area that a relatively small number of property lawyers practise in due to the legal complexities involved.

By contrast, lease extension is a statutory right that most tenants of flats can exercise, without joining in any other tenants in the buildings. That is not to say that lease extension work is without its pitfalls and risks.

Some lease extensions are granted under the 1993 Act, in which case a tenant's conveyancer should possess a good working knowledge of the procedures prescribed by the Act. Most lease extensions are negotiated outside the Act. In these cases, the tenant's conveyancer without sufficient knowledge of the Act may not be acting in their client's best interests.

This live broadcast session is primarily aimed at conveyancers who are not specialists in the area of lease extension.
