I have the freehold of a house that was converted into 3 flats before I acquired it. I also own the top flat. The owner of the ground floor flat wants to buy my flat and we have agreed a price and are nearly ready to exchange but he only wants to buy it if he can have the freehold. I definitely want to sell the freehold. I understand the basement flat is unlikely to want the freehold. I am aware I must serve a section 5a notice to both lessees. The notes I am reading says 50% of lessees must agree to buy. Does this mean if only the ground floor flat is interested that they will be unable to buy the freehold on their own?
Can I obtain the section 5a form myself and where from?
