I have the freehold of a house that was converted into 3

Customer Question

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?

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

No, I cannot wait any more. Please refund
I am disgusted as the person said they were on line waiting to answer. But theirs resume did say they were criminal law and did not mention property.
