About Us

The Lease Clinic is a specialist department and trading name of Comptons Solicitors LLP.

The Department was founded in 2010 by James Compton to exclusively market the firm’s specialism in enfranchisement law to flat owners. Since its launch it has been short listed for a Law Society Award in Excellence and has won an ERMA, the industry awards for Enfranchisement. James was also awarded Highly Commended as an individual practitioner and has podcasts published by the Leasehold Advisory Service.

The Firm have been asked on numerous occasions to contribute towards articles on this subject published in The Times, Sunday Telegraph, Evening Standard, The Independent and News on the Block.

Comptons is a member of the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners and have been involved in a number of high profile cases in the area of lease renewals and enfranchisement which have been reported in Law Reports and Hague (the leading text in this area).

We acted for leaseholders in the Court of Appeal and House of Lords decision in 9 Cornwall Crescent London Ltd v Kensington and Chelsea Royal London Borough [2005] which clarified the point that a Landlord’s counter notice does not need to state a reasonable premium.

We represented tenants in 5 Felix Avenue Ltd v Pledream Properties Limited [2010] which clarified that terms of acquisition have to be manifestly agreed.

We acted in the widely reported and controversial case of Cowthorpe Road 1-1A Freehold Limited v Wahedally CLCC [2017] which held that a Landlord’s Counter Notice cannot be served by email.

The Lease Clinic are passionate about what they do and are proud to work alongside their clients to achieve their goals in this complex area of law.

 

 

Through their Lease Clinic, Comptons have simplified the lease renewal process. Their expertise in this field is reassuring to all those involved and most definitely minimises the anxiety and delays caused by having to extend these shortening leases”
