A Range of Helpful Leaseholder Services
If you own a leasehold property, you do not own the land that your property is situated on, these are generally properties like flats within a block. As you are essentially leasing the property for a number of years, there are potential issues that are exclusive to leasehold properties. This is a specialist area of law and there are potential dangers which we will help you avoid. We will guide you through the set procedures, timescales to be followed and deadlines to be met.
Fraser Dawbarns offer a range of exclusive leaseholder services, if you are looking to extend your residential lease, or if you are looking to purchase the freehold of your property (known as leasehold enfranchisement) we can help. Contact our residential conveyancing team today to find out more about the various ways we can help you.
Leasehold properties with fewer than 80 years left on the lease can be difficult to sell as many lenders will not lend against these properties. Fortunately, if you are looking to sell a leasehold property, it is possible to extend the lease.
As part of this service, we will explain your statutory rights which, usually, allow you to extend your lease by 90 years, and which is added to the remaining term. A premium is payable and we can advise you where to go to find a leasehold surveyor who can calculate the likely amount.
If you would like help extending your lease or with any other related leaseholder services, contact our team who will be happy to help you.
If you are looking to purchase the freehold with other tenants we can, again, advise you in relation to the statutory procedures and in relation to the participation agreements which tenants often enter into before going ahead. You will again need a leasehold surveyor to help establish the best premium to offer.
We can then deal with the notices and transfer. We will also handle the registration for you and can advise you on setting up a company or declaration of trust if they are needed. If you are looking to acquire the freehold of your property or would like to discuss any of our related leaseholder services, speak to us today to find out how we can help you.

We are in strange times in the pandemic and what impressed me most is that this did not affect the level of service or provide excuses. We completed in 12 weeks and whilst I appreciate the chain has a bearing on timescales, Fraser Dawbarns did not hold up the time frame with their part.Client - Downham Market Office
