Reviews for the sixth edition:

" Hague on Leasehold Enfranchisement is the leasehold bible for anyone practising, advising on or involved in any way with lease extension and collective enfranchisement and it is an understatement to say that no library should be without it."
New Law Journal (2014, 7626)

“Anthony Radevsky and Damian Greenish are very well known for their expertise in this field and they have been professionally involved in many of the leading cases… No one who practice, indeed judges, in this field can afford to be without this book.”
Landlord & Tenant Review (2015, 19(3), 132-133)

“…an indispensable and definitive guide to the mysteries of leasehold enfranchisement in all its forms. In this it has no real rivals…”
The Conveyancer & Property Lawyer (2016, 2, 168-170)
