Need solicitor to assist with freehold purchase

Postby sj1904 » Thu Jun 02, 2016 1:18 pm

Hello
I own a flat in a converted house of 5 flats in Wandsworth Common. Our freeholders have been taking the mickey (to put it very politely) for many years charging for unnecessary repairs, inflated gardening fees etc and the majority of the flats have now had enough and want to go ahead and purchase the freehold.

We need to find a reliable lawyer to take us through the process though who has experience of this kind of case. Usual story - need someone cost effective but good :) I'm a solicitor myself but in a totally different area of the law so useless here...

Can anyone recommend someone please?
Thanks in advance

Thanks Annabel, a lot of these links and recommendations relate to pure conveyancing which is a bit of a different beast to leasehold enfranchisement. It would be good to know if anyone has gone through this process with someone reliable (rather than just sold/bought property)
Thanks All for any suggestions!
