      My appointed managing agent recommended a solicitor with experience on this,...

      Flying freehold is quite correct, but his words have incorrectly interpreted by the OP.

      Both individuals and companies can roll over gains resulting from statutory lease extensions. Individuals pay CGT and companies pay corporation tax on their gains. If the individual or company holds...

      Why did you tell them ?
      If they want a ridiculous amount then just back out, no great loss and unlikely they will take action for the breach.
      If they do then deal with it then ....

      Thanks Scott, yes this has been a wakeup call for me, believing that the church would act in good faith.
