Additional Services

Freeholder Tracing Service

If your freeholder is absent you will need to demonstrate that you have attempted to locate your missing freeholder when applying to the Court for a vesting order grating the right to a lease extension.
  • Pro-Leagle's tracing service will attempt to identify the owner of the freehold and their correspondence address. In the event that the freeholder cannot be found, Pro-Leagle will provide a certification document describing comprehensive search methods and advertisements used. Pro-Leagle will also discuss with you the ways in which you can proceed.
