Is there a separate freeholder or do you have a share of the freehold?
With enforceability of the covenants these can be enforced under the terms of the lease by the freeholder ultimately.
What steps have been taken to locate the leaseholder? Is the property vacant?
Thank you. So each of you has a share of the freehold. If the leaseholder is breaching their terms of lease you need to formally write to them at the property ( request it be passed on and also get an email address from the tenant) and specify what the concerns are and what you require them to do. Give them some time to respond. If they do not respond then you need to speak with the other joint freeholders about undertaking the remedy works.
Every lease has enforceability covenants which are undertaken by the freeholder. You have said that each leaseholder has a share of the freehold so that responsibility calls on you all and allows more freedom. The leaseholder is alive and contactable to enforce covenants so it will not make the property unmortgageable.
