Acquisition of freehold or leasehold property

Acquisition of freehold or leasehold property

The Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 extended certain rights under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967 in relation to houses so that the owner of a long lease of a house may be entitled to purchase the freehold.  This is now not as common as flat leasehold extensions and commercial enfranchisements, but if you have a leasehold house, we can advise you on your potential rights to buy the freehold.
