What is a Section 5 Notice?


If you have received a letter from your freeholder offering you and your neighbours the opportunity to purchase the freehold of your building, it is important that you act as soon as possible.

This is an excellent chance to own your freehold lock, stock and barrel and you only have a limited time to accept the offer.

What are the different Notices?

Section 5A: Your freeholder is proposing to sell their interest on the open market, and you have the right to buy it at the offer price.

Section 5B: Your freeholder is proposing to sell their interest via an auction.
It is important that you get in touch in this scenario as taking the correct steps within the deadlines is vital.

There are also 5C, 5D and 5E offers to consider, but these are different. If you receive such an offer, please contact us immediately.

Whatever Notice you receive, it is important to remember that your neighbours should also have received this offer – and that the acquisition can only take place if the majority – i.e. MORE than 50% agree to participate!
We can help you in this situation!
