Hello and thanks for you using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
If you are collectively purchasing the Freehold, no-one can force you to take up the role as a director or secretary. However, one of your fellow residents will need to take up these positions as the Company can't be formed otherwise.
Hopefully there will be 2 people who are keener than you to take up these positions!
I hope this assists and answers your question.
Kind Regards
