Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
It's bad news I am afraid, without any lease you have no rights. That is no right to remain or buy it. You can make an offer but the bank don't have fo accept it.
So no sadly you have no rights whatsoever, all you can do is negotiate with the bank,
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest,
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
