Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners

Need advice? Find a leasehold specialist solicitor or valuer in your area via ALEP

As part of Flat Living’s ongoing know your lease campaign, we always advise flat owners to take professional advice when buying a flat or considering buying their freehold, extending a lease or taking up their Right to Manage.

The Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners (ALEP) is an organisation set up to bring together leasehold specialists who can advise on all of these issues, as well as on any other aspects of leasehold tenure that may pose a problem or raise questions for flat owners.

ALEP’s website at is an invaluable resource, providing plenty of information and advice on a wide range of issues. The site also carries a directory of ALEP members – all of whom are qualified to provide specialist advice – and includes solicitors, barristers, valuers and surveyors.
