Yes, it's a residential property, ground floor flat, I bought it in 1996, my solicitor then never asked the then sellers' solicitors for permission to sell.. I am gob smacked that this is failing at the last smallest hurdle. As I said my solicitor wrote over 4 weeks ago and have left messages for the freeholder (who holds about 100 freehold reversions) and there is no response, I can't afford for this sale to fail this time cos of this small clause.. I hate leases cos they are so old and contain weird words and phrases. My solicitors said wait.. but they will loose interest very soon to buy, I know they will and would then have waste money I don't really have.
Thanks. Surely there must be a reasonable time for these people to respond, they have alreafdy had over 4 weeks, the responded quick enough to ask for £150 for their response!!! does this not demostarte that they can respond in a reasonable time...
