Outlining the qualification criteria and procedure in relation to collective enfranchisement (buying the freehold) of a residential leasehold building (flats)
If you as leaseholders have followed the formal route to buy the freehold, you can apply to the Tribunal to determine the terms. This application must be made within 6 months from the date of the counter-notice.
Buying the freehold can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
