I would like to know if I have the right to first refusal on the freehold of the property I own a lease on. I bought the flat with a ninety-nine year lease, the occupants in the other flat did likewise, after a number of years the freeholder put the freehold up for sale, both myself and the other tenant put in a bid to buy the freehold, because of an incompetent solicitor the other tenant somehow ended up with the freehold.
The years passed, and I was in a position to extend my lease, so my lease has got over a hundred and fifty years to run. Now the freeholder has died and left the property to his family who have sold the property on with a new lease plus the freehold to what I suspect is a property developer.
The property is a semi-detached three-story building split into a two-bedroom ground floor flat and a two-floor maisonette with four to five bedrooms with full planning permission.
I would like to know if I have again lost out on the freehold and can the new freeholder/leaseholder alter the maisonette to a number of flats going against the stipulations in my lease.
