Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi, thanks for your enquiry. A Lease can be granted, but a Freeholder can't grant himself a Lease.
On the basis that you both own the Freehold, you therefore have 2 options- you either have to transfer the Freehold into just one of your names and that person then grants the Lease to the 2 of you OR
the two of you grant the Lease to just one of you. I hope this assists and if so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer in the top right hand corner of your screen.
Kind Regards Al
