Purchasing a freehold enquiry

If you own the leasehold of a Clarion home you can submit an enquiry to receive further information about applying to purchase the freehold.

In order for the building to qualify:

  • There must be a minimum of two apartments in the building.
  • At least two-thirds of the apartments must be leasehold. In blocks of two properties both properties must be owned leasehold.
  • No more than 25% of the internal floor area to be in non-residential use.

In order for the residents to qualify

The minimum number of participating leaseholders must equal half the total number of apartments in the building. Where there are only two apartments in the building, both residents must agree to participate in the purchase. 

Leaseholders must own a 'long lease', which is:

  • A lease of in excess of 21 years when first granted.
  • A shorter lease, which contains a clause providing a right of perpetual renewal.
  • A shared ownership lease where the leaseholder's share is 100%.

A block or leaseholder cannot qualify for collective enfranchisement where:

  • The landlord is a charitable housing trust and the apartment is provided as part of the charity's functions.
  • The leaseholder owns more than two apartments in the building.
  • The leaseholder has a business or commercial lease.

In cases where the qualification criteria are not met we'll provide a full written explanation. Visit The Leasehold Advisory Service for independent information.
