Katie is a property lawyer who specialises in all aspects of leasehold enfranchisement, a niche area of residential property law. She acts for both landlords and tenants, advising them on a range of real-estate issues including the sale and purchase of residential property, all aspects of voluntary and statutory lease extensions, and freehold purchases and sales under the Leasehold Reform Act 1967 and Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993. Katie also assists clients with the sale and purchase of freeholds under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987 (Right of First Refusal) as well as the acquisition of freehold ground-rent investment portfolios and statutory collective enfranchisement claims.

A keen contributor to many leading specialist publications, Katie is often approached to provide comment on the topic of leasehold enfranchisement. She is also a full member of ALEP (Association of Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners). Most recently Katie has been asked to present a webinar on ground rent for a leading legal CPD provider.
