Now in its sixth edition, Hague on Leasehold Enfranchisement is the definitive source on the law and procedures to follow for enfranchisements involving houses, collective enfranchisement of flats and the individual right to a new lease. Matthew Dale-Harris (Barrister at Landmark & Chambers) describes it as “unquestionably the leading text when it comes to law”. He also suggests “the authors have included a useful index, complemented by extensive cross-referencing within the footnotes, which direct the reader to relevant discussions in the parallel 1967 Act and 1993 Act regimes” and that “Hague remains an indispensable and definitive guide to the mysteries of leasehold enfranchisement in all its forms” and an “an authoritative and discursive guide”.
The authors expertly guide the reader through all the major legislation including the Leasehold Reform Act of 1967, Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 and subsequent legislation in full. What’s more, precedents and worked examples are also included and statutory material can be found in the appendices so the reader knows precisely what the law requires and what necessary action to take.
