I have a share of freehold 1st floor flat in a small

This answer was rated:

I have a share of freehold 1st floor flat in a small terraced house. I bought the downstairs share of freehold flat a few years ago, so now own both. built as separate flats no communal areas as different entrances. I used both. I am selling the ground floor with share of freehold. However i'm confused as to why I am called the landlord and have to complete a leasehold property enquiries form (Although I look after the flats now, when the previous owners/share of freeholders were there we just looked after our own flats according to what was agreed in the documents. There's no ground rent, no managing agent, insurance is separate etc . Is it correct that I need to fill in the leasehold property enquiries form? does this mean it can still be sold as share of freehold and the buyer takes over all for the flat they are purchasing? I'm confused! thank you
