Collective Enfranchisement - Getting Started
Outlining the qualification criteria and procedure in relation to collective enfranchisement (buying the freehold) of a residential leasehold building (flats)
If a binding contract has not been entered into within two months of the agreement or Tribunal determination, either party can make an application to the County Court for an order to deal with the conclusion of the freehold purchase. This application must be made within two months of the initial two months period expiring.
Buying the freehold can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
