ALEPDIRECTORY Go to ALEP first about ALEP and its members.


If you are buying or selling a flat, extending a lease, buying your freehold, going down the right to manage route with your fellow residents, or simply need some leasehold advice, ALEP's member listings should be your first port of call.


Leasehold is a complex form of property ownership which generally, but not always, applies to flats. If you are buying a leasehold property, or even if you already own a flat but want to make changes to your lease or buy your freehold, first you should always seek the advice of a properly qualified expert. Many solicitors, estate agents and valuers do not have a lot of experience in working with leasehold property, so before you make a costly mistake that could mean storing up trouble for the future, take the time to find out more


Formed in 2007 and now with more than 160 member organisations, the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners or ALEP, provides a forum for professional advisers working in the residential leasehold sector who are properly qualified to offer effective, up-to-date advice to flat owners. Members include barristers, managing agents, solicitors, surveyors and enfranchisement intermediaries (who can bring the various professionals involved in the process together on the client's behalf). ALEP is a not-for-profit organisation so companies cannot buy their membership. Instead they are vetted on a regular basis so that membership of ALEP acts as a badge of assurance for flat owners and freeholders who can be confident that they are employing professionals with the right level of experience in handling potentially complex transactions.


On the following pages we list ALEP members by profession – solicitors, barristers, valuers, managing agents and enfranchisement intermediaries plus all the relevant contact details. To find the right professional in your area, always contact an ALEP listed adviser.

Jargon buster What is Enfranchisement?


When a leaseholder buys the freehold of the property the leaseholder is leasing, it is called 'enfranchisement'. Professionals who work in the enfranchisement sector also frequently offer advice on the legal aspects of a range of property issues such as lease extensions and the formation of right to manage companies as well as conveyancing.


Jargon buster What is an enfranchisement intermediary?


An enfranchisement intermediary is a third party who brings together and co- ordinates communication between the valuer, solicitor and flat owners to facilitate a successful outcome in an enfranchisement claim.
