New freeholder

Recommended Posts

My leasehold Maisonette (2 flats in a mid terrace property) has a new freeholder. 


The previous freeholder did ask me via email if I wanted to buy the freehold. 


I did make an offer and was passed some company details, however I asked her to deal with my son, as he manages my affairs. 


The company that they proposed I deal with didnt have any email/telephone details so I couldnt contact them. 


Now the new freeholder has made themselves known to me. 

What are my rights to purchase the freehold? 

Thank you

Hi @karim

What you are enquiring is your right of first refusal.  The Leasehold Advisory Service has a decent article about this: Right of First Refusal - The Leasehold Advisory Service (lease-advice.org).

If you would like to discuss further, please do get in touch.

For the avoidance of doubt, the above (a) does not constitute legal advice (and no lawyer-client relationship is formed in any way) and (b) is set out for your reference only.
