    Buying freehold and Compton Groups Leasehold Interest

    Hi All, hope everyone is well

    I currently have a house which is leasehold, 990 from Sept 1958. rent £7.10s.0d

    I have asked the Compton Group if I could buy the Freehold. They have come back saying that they dont hold the Freehold and its held by Estates & Management. The Compton Group have given me a cost of £800 to buy out the leasehold interest (inc of their costs and Land Registry fee to register the transfer into my name)

    I have a couple of questions regarding this. I take it as they have said the £800 is not negotiable to be fair to everyone is correct and they will not entertain a counter offer? How come if I buy the freehold do I still have to buy out the leasehold interest if I am no longer governed by a lease?

    Also on the Official copy register of title my name is on this (under B: Propriertorship register) and their is no mention of Compton Group or any other management company, so what is it that they are registering a transfer into my name on with the Land Registry?

    Finally, if I do buy their leasehold interest I am then bound by the conditions within the Head Lease, where do I get a copy of this?

    Thanks in advance

    Call an EGM. Make sure you give proper notice and that it is legal (download a boilerplate notice off the internet). In that EGM you can vote new directors in, or even vote the old directors out.

    Is this legal?

    A bit of background, we currently have three directors, we are allowed to have up to a maximum of eight directors according to the articles of association. We are all leaseholders. Last summer the three directors decided to hire a managing agent who is now in charge of the...

    I live in the upper flat of a maisonette, I have a right of way that goes around the back of the building from the side entrance, there are only two flats in the building.

    This is the ROW as it is in the land registry.


    Can I ask another question?

    As you can read it says Boundary determined by edge of pavings. Before the other party moved out they built a fence along the boundary though they build it on my side of the...

    by Andrea Cunningham
    As I said right at the beginning, there are some very sound reasons to do this which I wasn't going to go into. Suffice it to say that the current situation is one where the building I live in suffers under the tyranny of the majority of the larger building. So what is being sought is genuine control...

    The estate I live on has 2 blocks. All the leaseholders are members of the company which owns the freehold and manages the block ("Share of freehold").

    Suppose one of the 2 blocks decides to go it alone - so in other words gain the freehold from a company they are already a member...

    There is already no ground rent collected - so as I understand it the value of the freehold might be quite low anyway.

    If this is all done by negotiation then it is a moot point regardless, and it brings me back to what I was actually asking about, which is how to fairly and equitably split...

    That potentially raises an interesting question about what happens to any money that needs to be paid for the enfranchisement.
    At the moment payment is handed over, all those in the block being enfranchised would presumably cease to be members of the company - so wouldn't be entitled to any share...

    That may not be your intention, but it definitely seems like you haven't given proper consideration to what enfranchisement would involve.

    What do the leases specifically say about what is included within service charge/maintenance costs and how service charge costs are to be split?...
