Remortgaging can have many benefits, such as saving you a significant amount of money or helping you free up equity to pay for things like home improvements. Our remortgage solicitors can handle the legal aspects of the process on your behalf, such as liaising with your lender and ensuring the transaction is properly registered at the Land Registry.

If you own a leasehold property (usually a flat, but sometimes a house can also be leasehold), you are likely to have important legal rights that you can use to strengthen your ownership. We can provide advice about:
- Buying or selling a leasehold property
- Lease extension – to make your lease longer and increase its value
- Collective enfranchisement – the process of collectively buying the freehold to your flat building with the other flat owners
- Buying the freehold of house
- Right to manage – taking over the management of your flat building
- Right of first refusal – the right to collectively enfranchise if your freeholder wants to sell your building

If you have an assured shorthold tenancy or a periodic tenancy, we can provide advice on your rights and obligations and provide a robust dispute resolution and litigation service. We act for both landlords and tenants in matters such as:
- Rent arrears disputes
- Repairs and maintenance
- Deposit disputes
- Restrictive covenants
- Possession proceedings
- Residential evictions
We take a constructive approach to disputes where possible. Although you are likely to feel frustrated about the situation, you could save considerable time, costs and stress by settling the matter out of court. We will always strive to achieve the best outcome for you while keeping costs proportionate and preserving relationships.
