Collective Enfranchisement Valuation

A group of leaseholders in the shared block of flats can join together in the statutory process called collective enfranchisement. This allows you to take the freehold control into your hands by enfranchising the freehold title from your current landlord, providing you meet the set eligibility criteria in Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993.

We can discuss your situation and check whether you are eligible and determine the collective enfranchisement premium you will be required to pay to your landlord. 

You may wish to initiate collective enfranchisement for the following reasons:


  • The block is not managed efficiently and repairs are left unattended.
  • Most of the flats are on the short leases and sometimes it is better to collectively enfranchise rather than individually extend the leases.
  • You want to take into your own hands the management of service charges.
  • You have absentee freeholder.

Why Should You Instruct Lease Extension Surveyor?

You might have seen lease extension calculator online which is good for providing an indicative premium for lease extension but it should not be relied on for serving statutory notices as it does not consider rising ground rents which form a significant portion of the lease extension premium.

The most reliable way to ensure that the correct lease extension premium is paid is to instruct a specialist lease extension valuation surveyor. The surveyor will inspect your property and prepare a detailed lease extension valuation report which will include the premium payable and the likely range that lease extension will be settled at. In order to arrive at the lease extension premium, the surveyor will consider the three most important variables in the lease extension valuation:

Ground Rent Icon


The ground rent sometimes can significantly affect the premium. Some leases may contain various ground rent provisions and these can be fixed, rising, doubling or even tied to Retail Price Index (RPI). The collective enfranchisement surveyor can help you understand the ground rent nuances and explain the implications of having ground rents increasing by the interval. 

Lease Length Icon


The length of the lease has a direct effect on collective enfranchisement valuation. The longer the lease the cheaper total premium payable will be. The collective enfranchisement surveyor will use lease term remaining to derive reversionary interest value which forms part of the total premium payable. 

Marriage Value Icon


Marriage value is a formula which forms part of the collective enfranchisement valuation. When the lease falls below 80 years the landlord is entitled to a 50% increase from a short and a long lease value when the lease is extended. The specialist collective enfranchisement surveyor will calculate the short lease value of the property to determine the marriage value compensation payable to the landlord.
