I have served a Section 13 notice and have not received a counter-notice. What can I do?

In the Section 13 notice you must specify a date for response of at least 2 months from the date of service of the notice. If your freeholder does not respond or responds late then you can apply to the County Court to acquire the freehold on the terms of the Section 13 notice within 6 months from the date the counter-notice was supposed to be given.

Buying the freehold 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.
