This live broadcast session covers a wide spectrum of leasehold conveyancing, from the basic principles of (long) leasehold to buying a shared ownership residential flat.

It is ideal for those who are new or relatively new to residential leasehold conveyancing through to experienced residential conveyancers who are looking for a refresher and an update in one.

Not just about sales and purchases, it will cover problem areas such as service charges, administration charges, consents, reversionary interests and rights of first refusal, and much, much more.

  • Basic principles, enforcement and forfeiture
  • Enfranchisement - a brief guide through this complex area

    • Leasehold 'houses' - what qualifies as a house
