Can we buy the leasehold of our rural residential property and if so how long does it take and how do we go about it? Thanks
Wechave just completed on what we thought was our dream home, but the dream we had of extending the kitchen and because we are losing a large amount of the remaining outside space also wanted to build a roof terrace on top. We have consulted an architect who says planning permission should not be a problem as there are already 2 previous extensions and only 1 neighbour who is overlooked and we can start the roof terrace further back from the edge tobthis neighbour their privacy. Our problem is the leaseholder who's house is situated across a very large field from our house and which has no windows overlooking ours, but is saying they will not give their written permission to do the works as it will be an invasion of their privacy. We see the only way around it is if we could buy the lease. We neeed to know can we if so how long do we have to owned the property for and now do we go about it? Many thanks.
