Our team specialises in offering expert advice to both landlords and tenants in all aspects of leasehold enfranchisement, applications to extend leases or obtaining the right to manage and complying with the tenants’ rights of first refusal.
We pride ourselves on dealing with your enquiries and problems as swiftly as possible and tailor our advice to your circumstances, providing the most cost-effective solution to your leasehold problems.
At Tolhurst Fisher LLP we offer you a complete service that will handle all parts of your claim (or your response to your tenants’ claims) from start to finish. This includes:
Representation in the Courts, Leasehold Valuation Tribunal and Lands Tribunal
Although in the vast majority of cases lease extensions or collective enfranchisement claims are resolved privately between the parties, occasionally, if a settlement cannot be reached, it may be necessary to litigate in either the Court, the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal ("LVT") or the Lands Tribunal.
Tolhurst Fisher LLP will represent you in court, LVT and the Lands Tribunal proceedings either personally or, if more cost-effective for you, by instructing a barrister on your behalf.
Assistance with drafting deeds and contracts
With lease extension and collective enfranchisement claims it is necessary to draft deeds and contracts to facilitate the process. A poorly worded or improperly executed document will, at best, delay the process and, at worst, can potentially lead to thousands of pounds of litigation or invalidate your claim altogether.
Our team can help you by drafting these documents and ensuring that they are properly executed.
