Senior associate Shabnam Ali-Khan and Colin Horton, Managing Director of Hortons Valuers (specialist leasehold enfranchisement firm), discuss the routes and pitfalls surrounding the issue of lease extensions for residential flats. In this session the pair unpack the proposed leasehold reforms and give some of their own thoughts.
In the first session they set out the basics of lease extensions and why it is not good to wait till your lease falls below 80 years.
Shabnam specialises in lease extension and enfranchisement matters, primarily under the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 working with a variety of clients ranging from high net worth individuals and companies to individual leaseholders and investor landlords. Shabnam has carved out a niche in right of first refusal matters pursuant to the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987.
