Many leaseholders are unhappy with the management of their building and there are two key routes to obtaining control and appointing a managing agent with your best interests at heart.

The first of these is Leasehold Enfranchisement. This involves purchasing the freehold from the current owner and forming a Residential Management Company to administer the block management. This can be an expensive process but can ultimately benefit leaseholders in gaining control of their homes.

A second option is to form a Right to Manage company. This takes over the management from the Freeholder and enables leaseholders to employ a professional managing agent of their own choosing. Although it is cheaper than the enfranchisement route there are limitations.

Barnard Cook can advise on these and a variety of other leasehold matters including Lease Extensions, Alterations Licenses, Breach of Covenants and more.
