Hi. When I bought a leasehold property recently the freeholders

Resolved Question:

Hi. When I bought a leasehold property recently the freeholders address details on the lease were the same as my apartment (excluding the apartment number - of which there was none). The whole block has 12 flats and the freeholder does not occupy any of them or any other area of that address. This is also the address my solicitor who did the convenyancing has for them and it is not correct. I contacted the company the freehold has allocated to manage the block asking for the full contact details of the freeholder but they have advised me that any contact with the freeholder should be made through them c/o their address. Do I, as the leaseholder of the apartment, have the right to know the registered company address of the freeholder?

Thank you - I will look it up. But my question was do I, as the leaseholder of the apartment, have the right to know the registered company address of the freeholder?

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
No, unless the freeholder has agreed to do so with you e.g. In your lease document.

Hope this clarifies
