Freehold Enfranchisement – Flow Chart

Check you qualify – you will need:

  • Self-contained building or self contained part of building
  • Non residential parts not more than 25%
  • 2 or more flats held by qualifying tenants
  • Flats of qualifying tenants not less than 2/3rd of total flats
  • Participating tenants not less than 50% of total flats


Take professional valuation advice from a surveyor (not essential but strongly advised).

If more than two flats it is best to form a freehold company.

Serve notice on landlord of your right to buy freehold stating offer price and allowing at least 2 months to respond.

Landlord serves counter-notice on you stating  price they are willing to accept.

If Landlord’s price in counter-notice is not agreeable negotiations commence, usually between the respective surveyors – if no agreement between 2 and 6 months after service of counter-notice then refer to Leasehold Valuation Tribunal for them to decide price.

Once price and all terms of purchase are agreed complete purchase – usually within two months of agreeing price.
