I’m a Partner here at Gerald Eve and head up our Residential Leasehold Enfranchisement team. I specialise in advising on statutory and capital valuations of Central London residential properties, focusing on lease extensions (flats), collective enfranchisements (blocks of flats), enfranchisements (houses), and asset valuations.
My current work focuses on providing valuation advice to private clients and major Central London estates relating to lease extensions and enfranchisement claims. I carry this out under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967 (as amended), the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 (as amended) and the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002, including negotiations and the preparation of proofs of evidence for Tribunal hearings.
I have worked in the residential sector in Central London since 1999. My experience covers residential valuations for leasehold reform, portfolios, loan security, taxation, matrimonial, inheritance, insurance and litigation purposes. Primary clients include the Grosvenor, Cadogan and Portman Estates. I’m also an informal advisor to the Leasehold Advisory Service (Government funded, independent advice for residential leaseholders and park home residents) with regard to enfranchisement.
