Right of First Refusal
Outline of the right of pre-emption given to qualifying tenants when their immediate landlord is disposing of his interest.
The Right of First Refusal (RFR) may apply, however, please note that there are certain disposals which are exempt. Where the freehold has been sold and the Right of First Refusal does apply there may be rights of enforcement against the new purchaser. It may be possible to serve a notice on the new freeholder to compel sale of the freehold.
The Right of First Refusal can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area. See the list of Leasehold Practitioners.
