    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

    First of all, you should not be stating or implying to anyone, least of all your landlord, that you have breached the lease. An admission of a breach saves the landlord the trouble of having to determine that a breach has occurred and has no benefit whatsoever to you.

    Hi there. I hope someone can help me because I have been frantic with worry for 3 days now. This is a bit long!

    I bought a leasehold flat in July 2014. Since I've been here, I have done everything to it to bring it up to a modern acceptable standard. Note that the floorpan of the property...

    Ok, the situation is this...

    I am a director of the freehold management company for a small block of flats (other directors being leaseholders like myself).

    Earlier this year we had some banking issues and changed from one of the big high street banks to an on-line bank....

    For a start:
    1. Any clause that says that you have to keep floors carpeted, or can't have wooden floors.
    2. Any clause that states that you need inform the freeholder, and/or get freeholder's permission, for non structural alterations.
    3. Any clause that requires you not to do anything...

    I thought that ground floors only were allowed wooden floors.

    And you're right, if I was in my buyer's shoes, I would hate the guy who sold them a flat with clearly weakened soundproofing qualities. I mean, it wasn't great anyway, but it was liveable.

    What clauses should I...

    Rather than withdrawing from the sale, you could just inform the buyers solicitor that you initially answered these questions thinking that they referred only to structural changes, but would like to inform them of the work that you have done.
    It will then be up to the buyer whether they continue...

    I also have no Building Regulations certificates, even though I may have decreased the acoustic and thermal properties of the building.

    Nothing that you have said that you have done to your flat seems to breach the lease clauses that you have quoted - but that doesn't mean that you have breached clauses that you haven't quoted as you clearly haven't quoted all potentially relevant clauses in full.

    It sounds more like the...
