Let’s explore some real success stories that showcase the difference our expertise can make in property transactions.

    Case 1: Negotiating a Lease Extension

    Situation: A leaseholder approached us with a 2-bedroom ground-floor maisonette boasting only 62 years left on the lease. The landlord originally demanded an imposing £45,000 for the lease extension.

    Our Solution: Leveraging our extensive knowledge of lease extensions, we embarked on negotiations on behalf of the leaseholder. Our expertise in property valuations and negotiation tactics allowed us to secure a remarkable outcome—a substantial reduction in the price. The final agreement saw the cost reduced to a much more manageable £28,000, safeguarding the leaseholder’s property and saving them a significant sum.

    Case 2: Maximising Returns for the Freeholder

    Situation: Acting for the Freeholder of a highly sought-after 2-bedroom maisonette, a leaseholder served notice with a modest offer of £16,800 for the lease extension.

    Our Solution: In this scenario, we were entrusted with representing the Freeholder’s interests. Drawing upon our in-depth expertise, we meticulously assessed the property’s value and skillfully negotiated. The result was a substantial increase in the offer, securing an impressive £32,000 for the lease extension on behalf of the Freeholder.

    Case 3: Empowering Leaseholders to Purchase the Freehold

    Situation: Six leaseholders within a block of flats were eager to purchase the freehold. The landlord initially demanded a significant sum of £83,000 for the transaction.

    Our Solution: Advocating for the leaseholders, we took charge of negotiations with the landlord. Our expertise in freehold enfranchisement proved invaluable as we skillfully navigated the process. The outcome was a significant victory for the leaseholders, as the final agreement saw the cost of the freehold reduced to a mere £40,000. This not only empowered the leaseholders but also collectively saved them over £40,000.

    Case 4: Reducing the Cost of Freehold Purchase

    Situation: Two leaseholders of maisonettes were determined to purchase their freehold from the landlord, who initially sought £45,330 for the transaction.

    Our Solution: Stepping in to represent the leaseholders, we harnessed our expertise to ensure a fair and favourable deal. Our negotiation skills and our deep understanding of freehold valuations played a pivotal role. As a result, we achieved a significant reduction in cost, with the final agreement setting the price at a much more reasonable £22,600, effectively halving the expense and delivering substantial savings to the Leaseholders.
