Course An Introduction to Enfranchisement and Lease Extension


When your client asks you to advise on enfranchisement or lease extensions, do you take a deep breath and reach for the painkillers? If so, you’re not alone!

As a property lawyer, you will know that the law on enfranchisement and lease extension is complex and often misunderstood. If you have little or no knowledge of this topic, this course is designed with you in mind.

The Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (and related law) is fraught with pitfalls for the unwary. If you ignore or overlook those areas, you may cause substantial problems for your client – and potentially attract a negligence claim against your firm. This is a bestselling course, highlighting the particularly tricky areas – arming you with the knowledge necessary to guide your clients through this legal minefield with confidence.
