Thanks for your patience.

You need to enter the details of the leasehold in to the “Find a Property” search engine on the land registry website:-!ut/p/b1/04_SjzS0tDQwMTIxMjLXj9CPykssy0xPLMnMz0vMAfGjzOKNjSxMDA1NjDwsjM3MDTxN3dyNDUNMjQ1MjPWDU_P0c6McFQH3SLFU/

It may generate number of entries, it might list the building as a whole and also all the flats in the building held on leases (I assume that it is a long-leasehold property), click on the one that you think it is and it will confrim that you are able to download a copy of the title register for the property for a small fee.

Once you have downloaded a copy of the register you need to check section A – property register, to confirm that is is the correct lease. Then you can find out who owns the lease by checking section b, proprietorship register, this will list the owner.
