Buying your freehold in this way is often significantly cheaper than when initiated by the leaseholders of the building! You will pay only the premium as offered (which in our experience can mean a significant discount), plus any costs the freeholder specifies in their Notice.

There is increasingly evidence that a flat with a share of freehold could be worth between 2-4%This means that you and your neighbours will take control of the ownership and running of your building, inevitably also saving you a considerable amount of money every month. You and your neighbours will transition from long-term leasehold ‘renters’ to actual freehold property owners.
