Freeholder functions – what to do when a flat is sold?

Colin B owns a flat in New Milton, Hampshire. He recently bought the freehold of the building, and now one of the other flats in the building is being sold. Mr B received questions, as the freeholder of the building, and he contacted to LEASE to find out how he should respond.

The LEASE adviser went through each question, explaining the terms used, and how Mr B could find the information. The adviser also explained that it was good for him to provide any information if he could, but there was no legal requirement for him to do so.

Mr B said, “I was so impressed with the service provided and was very grateful. Many thanks”.
