Absentee Freeholders

Posted on 31/05/17, filed under Fresh News

Leaseholders who wish to extend their residential leases or purchase the freehold of their block when the freeholder cannot be traced do not need to despair. The 1993 Leasehold Reform Housing & Urban Development Act addresses this situation and provides a procedure for the lease extension/freehold enfranchisement to still happen when the freeholder’s whereabouts is unknown. We at Julian Wilkins & Co Chartered Surveyors have successfully dealt with a number of such cases and are able to assist leaseholders in this situation.

Please call us for an initial free telephone consultation to discuss the particular circumstances of any case.
