I am trying to buy a flat - a Victorian house split into two

Customer Question

I am trying to buy a flat - a Victorian house split into two flats - with a share of the freehold. my seller is willing to sell to me, but the freeholder of the other flat won't sign so that I can buy and he can sell to me. He has the freehold of my flat and she has the freehold of the other. Is this legal? Can he never sell this flat if she wont sign? Could I buy it without the freehold and try to buy it at a later date?
The garden had been divided and on the deeds, my half was bigger than what was actually fenced when it was measured. My seller has moved the fence so it is all legal, but she wont sign. She does not live there. It is rented out. Any ideas please? Thanks.

I was due to exchange contracts yesterday. Did not happen as other freeholder won't sign. I am desperate and will be homeless in 2 weeks time. The flat I want to buy is empty. Money in place and mortgage. Would it be worth offering other freeholder a fee?
