If you're interested in joining Team Homehold, we'd love to talk to you.
Homehold specialise in 1993 Act lease extensions and collective enfranchisement claims.
We have a clear social aim: to achieve a fair deal for our leaseholder clients and make the process as smooth and stress-free for them as possible. You can read what we have to say on our About Us page or Google us and check out what our client's think on our Google Reviews.
We are growing fast and will be adding to our fantastic team significantly over the next two years. We pay competitive salaries to attract the best people to support this growth – in one of the three roles below.
Working at Homehold is different than working for other firms, and you can read more about that here.
If you think you might be interested in working at Homehold, please email our Director, Linz, on firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll organise a virtual coffee. Even if we’re not quite ready to hire you – or you’re not available to start your next role - it is worth the chat.
Experienced Leasehold Valuers
Do you have extensive experience in completing valuations and negotiating fair and reasonable settlements under the LHRUDA 1993?
At Homehold your role will be to review the valuation work of less experienced members of the team, conduct the more complex valuations and oversee negotiations. When a case makes it as far as the FtT you will be involved in producing the Expert Witness report – although attendance at the hearing will be dependent on your experience and appetite.
Much of our valuation work is done on a desktop basis, so this role would suit an experienced surveyor who looking for a position which involves less time on the road and doesn’t tie you to a particular geographical location.
If you’re a member of the RICS, that’s great. However, Homehold are not a firm of chartered surveyors, so this isn’t a requirement.
If you’ve got an interest in property and consider flicking through Rightmove a bit of a hobby, this could be the job for you!
All our valuations are based on market evidence of transactions of relevant comparable flats which have sold or are for sale.
Once you’ve selected a short-list of transactions you will validate each one to understand the lease length at sale, the particulars of the property and circumstances around the sale. This is to make sure the transaction is a genuine reflection of the market value of our client’s flat.
Your evidence will be used by your colleagues as the basis of valuations and negotiations.
This role has plenty of opportunity for training and growth – once you have a grounding in valuation, you will be invited to develop your skills in completing leasehold calculations, report writing and even negotiation.
Legal Specialists / Client Managers
Each of our clients is allocated a client manager who looks after their lease extension from start to finish. This includes completing the initial research on the title, sharing the valuation report, drafting the notice, and keeping the client updated throughout the conveyancing process.
We’re currently looking for client managers who already have a few years’ experience in leasehold enfranchisement – including in reviewing titles and drafting section 42 notices.
If you’ve been working in a law firm and completing these tasks on a day-to-day basis, this could be the job for you!
Working at Homehold
Homehold is a modern firm and working for us is quite different to working for a conventional law firm or chartered surveyors.
We don’t work on the basis that every moment of your time must be recorded and billed to a client. Instead as a team we schedule and complete a set amount of work each week which is manageable – so we always know that our team isn’t overstressed, the quality of work remains high and there is time to develop skills and experience.
While we meet up each month for a workday in central London, the team works remotely the rest of the time – which gives you the chance to live where you want and Homehold the opportunity to hire the best people irrespective of location.
Enfranchisement requires a specialist skill-set, but your role and progression throughout the firm will be entirely dependent on your ability and willingness to learn, rather than whether you have a specific qualification.
