Hi thank you for your message, you do not have an automatic right to purchase this however, you can contact the freeholder and make inquiries about purchasing the freehold. Given the long length of the lease they may consent to this but it is subject to negotiation. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
