Blocks of more than 35 flats - price on application.

In addition to the Lessees costs there is:

  1. The "Premium" established for Collective Enfranchisement, and
  2. by law the Lessees have to pay the Landlord's reasonable legal & professional fees (and those of any intermediate landlord, if they choose to be separately represented)

Note 1
Depends on whether there is an intermediate landlord.

Note 2
Minimum fees for 3-4 hours negotiation (additional 1-2 hours for larger blocks) purpose to agree material facts & areas of dispute in valuation. Approximately 80% of cases are settled within this allowance. Fee structure includes percentage of saving so you can be sure we focus on doing our best for you.

Please note this fee includes a £200+VAT fee for a protectionary application to the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) (formerly the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal (LVT)) within the six month deadline from receipt of the counter notice. This application will not always be needed.

Note 3
It is not necessary to execute a lease extension just because you have bought your freehold but if you are re-mortgaging getting a lease extension may become an issue.

Note 4
Where the premium for a lease extension is agreed without serving a Section 42 Notice under the 1993 Act as amended, if you have a mortgage the lender may charge you for preparing a substituted deed of security as only lease extensions resulting from a Section 42 Notice are exempt transactions. Our fee for dealing with your mortgage lender to execute a substituted deed of security is £200+Vat.
