• Selling A Flat

    By Guest on 06th Sep 2014

    I am trying to sell my leasehold flat. However the freeholder is refusing to sign the relevant paperwork, and is making unreasonable demands. I have already lost the sale of the flat, twice, due to the freeholder. My solicitor is at a loss as to what to do, and I am becoming very stressed with it all. Any advice would be good. Regards Jackie

    The freeholder is not usually entitled to hinder your sale without just cause. Without knowing all of the facts I am of course speculating however it sounds like consent to assign is required. If so the law implies a term that consent should not be unreasonably withheld. You may wish to discuss with your solicitor the possibility of taking the freeholder to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal (LVT) who may order that consent is granted. You may also, separately, be able to sue the freeholder and recover any losses you have suffered.
