I have a 2 bedroom flat on a lease with 77 years remaining. I have it up for sale (and its in excellent condition) but the problem seems to be the duration of the lease (feedback from estate agent).
I would like to extend back to the original term of 99 years, and the nightmare is that the freeholder lives downstairs (its a detached house conversion of 2 flats). They have been nothing short of a nightmare for my current tenants (noise disturbance) and despite me speaking to them, and confirming my concerns in a letter to them, the noise continues.
My dilemma is that I am loathe to ask them for the lease extension, as I think they may try and refuse to communicate, and also the thought of handing over my money (approx. £5k) to them really sticks!
Can anyone offer advice on the best way to resolve this?
