Rebranding our lease extension team

2017 sees a change of name for the highly specialist lease extension team here at Bonallack and Bishop.

In future the team will be known as “The Leasehold Property Team”.

Why? That’s simple.

It certainly doesn’t mean that we are any less committed to lease extension work or any less specialist in it.

On the contrary – in the most recent half year took our expert lawyers took on 180 individual lease extensions, for both large freeholders, small freeholders and numerous individual leaseholders. In fact we are looking to increase the number of flat and house leases we extend every year to at least 400. That makes us one of the most specialist leasehold extension teams in England and Wales – out of a total of over 10,000 law firms nationwide.

No, the reason why we are changing the name is that increasingly we do so much more leasehold law work in addition to lease extension. Not only do we complete numerous collective enfranchisement projects (that’s buying the freehold of your block together with some of your follow leaseholders), but our expert team carry out numerous title splits as well as a whole host of other leasehold law work including service charge and ground rent disputes, lease variation, forfeiture and licence for alterations.

And what’s more our leasehold work is growing. The team is already four strong and we are looking to recruit a fifth member of the team this March.


When it comes to all aspects of the  law surrounding leases, our specialists can help you wherever you live in England and Wales. We don’t even need to see you face-to-face – like many of our other clients, we can take this your instructions by e-mail, phone and Skype video:
