Hello,
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
Nicola

1. Essentially, what you need to do here is to write a 10 day warning letter, giving the Freeholder ten days within which to give a response to the letter failing which you will apply to court to dispense with freeholder consent. In law, a freeholder is obliged to give a response to any request for Freeholder consent within a reasonable time. Absent a response within a reasonable time, a person is entitled to apply to court to remove the requirement for freeholder consent. Almost three months have passed since you sought freeholder consent. This is more than sufficient time to give a freeholder an opportunity to reply to your request for consent. So failing a response within ten days, you should apply to court to dispense with the freeholder's consent in the instant case.
