The current leasehold enfranchisement system is complex and creates many opportunities for litigation to arise. In more recent times, we have seen the introduction of new landlord and tenant-related legislation with potential further changes to follow in the upcoming years. The Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill is now substantively progressed, and proposed various changes which will change contentious enfranchisement significantly.

This virtual classroom seminar will provide an overview for those keen to obtain a better understanding of the different contentious areas of enfranchisement, especially in view of the reforms. The session places a particular emphasis on new emerging litigation arising from the changing landscapes and includes lease extensions, collective enfranchisement claims and leasehold house acquisitions.

The course will particularly help those who are confident with the non-contentious aspects of enfranchisement and are seeking to expand their knowledge. It will also benefit other professionals who regularly undertake enfranchisement such as valuers, managing agents and surveyors.
