Collective Enfranchisement

Collective Enfranchisement is usually more costly than RTM, as you are purchasing the Freehold asset.  


Leasehold Reform Housing & Urban Development Act 1993 allows eligible leaseholders as a collective to purchase the Freehold. The premium paid is either negotiated directly with the Freeholder or calculated by the formula in accordance with the act. 


Similar to RTM, there is a procedure and associated qualifications. In some cases, DMS would recommend enfranchisement, especially if the term left on the lease is near 80 years.
