Hi Jo, thanks for your response.
Who is the Treasury Solicitor? (Please treat me as an idiot!)
And would that likely be a large sum? We have already paid for our flats and wouldn't be able to afford to buy them again...
We pay £35 each per month into a joint account in the name of Windus Road Management Company, and use this to pay our electricity bills etc. There isn't any other ground rent.
Thank you. Ruth.
Thanks very much. A look online gives me the addresses of the Treasury Solicitor etc, so this feels promising.
Having emailed the other flat owners just now, it sounds as though we looked into this before but it looked like it was going to be about £15,000 to buy back (although I think that was an estimation from some advisor somewhere). Is that about what you would expect? Our flats are worth about £300K each.
I think we will now formulate an application, and pray that the actual price offered is less than this. In your experience, is it worth being really charming and trying to tug on their heart strings? If it’s a price that they decide then it might be?
Thanks so much for your help. I will give you a good rating now.
