If you are using the Leasehold Reform Act 1967 you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to determine the price. However, if you are privately negotiating you cannot apply to the Tribunal and so it is a matter for negotiation.
Buying the freehold can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
