  • Getting freehold information about a flat wanting to purchase

    Hi All,

    I'm in a process of buying a repossession flat, but there's a bit of a problem about getting necessary information for mortgage lender.

    The building has about 6 flats and I had a chance to speak to a lady, which has one of the flats, and she told me they do not use any external management company and they manage the building themselves. She also told the building is a freehold.

    The problem is she isn't very cooperative. Solicitors wrote to her before on numerous occasions and she isn't very helpful, which is a bit of a mystery to me.

    Is there a way to get some information without her help? The most important thing for me is getting some sort of 'certificate' which would say the flat I'm buying is a share of freehold. Is there some soft of an office where I could go myself and obtain that information for a lender?

    Many thanks,
