What our clients say

“Just wanted to thank you for your prompt and efficient handling of our Statutory Lease Extension. Dealing with processes of this sort can often be slow and tortuous with little explanation of what is involved but the converse has been my experience, thanks to your guidance and advice.

I will certainly use your practice for any future property related matters and will happily recommend others to do likewise.”

Leasehold Enfranchisement

I am a leasehold enfranchisement paralegal at Bate & Albon.

My entire career has been within property, especially lettings and block management which has given me a thorough knowledge of my field and naturally migrated into leasehold law approximately 9 years ago.

My Work Largely Involves:
  • Lease extensions, both inside and outside the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993
  • Handling the assignment of lease extension claims as part of the sale process
  • Right to Manage claims
  • Freehold enfranchisement claims
  • Tenants right of first refusal under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987

I act for both tenants and landlords, and have good relationships with a number of local surveyors who I work alongside in the lease extension process.

Outside of the workplace, I am a voracious reader (via kindle to save space in the house!), walking my Springer Poodle on the beach, cooking, cinema and spending time with my family.
