Whether you are a tenant looking to enforce your right to buy the freehold of a property or extend the terms of your leases; or you are a landlord who wants to defend your right not to sell or to make sure you are offered the best possible price for the freehold, our Leasehold Enfranchisement department can help you.

Leasehold enfranchisement has increased in popularity in recent years, and because of the current housing market that trend does not look like ceasing. With the number of cases on the up so is the number of firms offering such services. What makes Colman Coyle different is our specialist knowledge and over 20 years experience in this area.

“Sayrha was always extremely responsive and clearly very very good at her job. Never felt worried or had to chase her for anything. I’ve recommended her to all my friends and clients looking for a Solicitor.” 

“If you’re looking for a team of solicitors who are calm under pressure, brilliant communicators and fast operators then look no further than Colman Coyle. If it wasn’t for Sayrha and her team I doubt I would have been in a position to sell my flat. The sale had a number of complex conveyancing issues which previous solicitors had failed to resolve. Colman Coyle took the case on and solved it through hard work, dedication and serious attention to detail. They talked me through all my options in a clear concise way and always responded promptly with any questions I had. I have recommended them to all my friends who have all had wonderful experiences with the team. THANK YOU CC!”

“Just a quick note to say thanks again Sayrha for all your help the last few years, both in buying and selling my properties. Really appreciate your constant availability when needed, straightforward explanations, and honesty when required. And thanks also for keeping your fees just this side of reasonable! Hopefully many more deals to come.”

“I would recommend Sayrha to anyone looking for an experienced conveyancer to handle their sale/purchase. Despite a difficult and complicated sale of our flat she was helpful, communicative and professional at all stages of the process. She always responded quickly to enquiries and developments and kept us informed throughout.”

“Sayrha has provided a responsive and first class service. She has always displayed an in-depth knowledge of my transaction and its progress. In my 10 year career within the property industry she is amongst the best solicitors I have dealt with.”

“Sayrha makes everything so simple, all transactions we have done through Sayhra are smooth. Communication and responsiveness is great.”

“Sayrha’s service was very efficient and I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her to further clients.” Andrew Cohen (MRICS), Talbot Surveyors

“We sold a lease hold flat with Sayrha’s help which required a lease extension before it could be sold. Her knowledge, experience and communication were excellent and I am very satisfied with the services received. I admire her determination in the process to push for results whilst dealing with an uncooperative and unresponsive freeholder. I have since worked with Sayrha on a second successful transaction and I recommend her without reservation.”

“Sayrha represented me in my Lease Extension and she was very competent and efficient at all times. She explained and outlined the procedure process to me very clearly as well as the possible scenarios that could happen in terms of timescales and routes that had to be followed.”
