About Us

Our aim is to negotiate a fair deal on your lease extension with your freeholder, while offering you a seamless fixed-price service.

Who are we?

Homehold was founded by brothers Linz Darlington and Ben Darlington. The story began in 2016 when Linz started looking for someone to help him extend the lease on his maisonette in Greenford.

After a long, confusing and expensive process, we decided to start a company that would work only for leaseholders.

A fair deal:

We are genuinely passionate about getting our clients a fair deal on their lease extension.

This involves proactively negotiating your premium and freeholder's legal and valuation fees.

What does a fair deal mean?

But it’s not about us. It’s about you:

Too often when we are the customer, we find ourselves chasing the company we’ve instructed to do the work and waiting for call-backs that never come.

We promise that as a Homehold customer you will never feel like this: your dedicated account manager will proactively manage your lease-extension from start to finish, keeping you updated at every turn.

What does a seamless service mean?

Tried and tested

We’ve honed our customer-centric approach to business through years of running Homehold and our other organisations, Benefacto and GivX. Both of which work with companies in London, Leeds and Manchester to help them increase and measure the contribution they make in the community.

We run businesses which have a clear social aim. In the case of Homehold, this is ensuring leaseholders can excercise their right to an extended lease at a fair price and only paying reasonable costs. Most of our clients will only ever extend one lease, and the process can be complex and contentious. It's important to us that our leaseholder clients are supported through it.

In addition to supporting our customers, each of our organisations is focused on making a positive contribution to society, and our duty to sustain the planet we share (find out more about how we do this on the Benefacto BCorp profile).
