My Loft space Vs Freeholder’s will to build more flats?Make Text Bigger
I’ve recently purchased a lease hold, top floor flat, with a leasehold stating the loft space is part of the flat.
Moved in couple of weeks ago, and settling in.
Two weeks later (yesterday) i received a call from the freeholder himself wanting to arrange a meeting about buying the loft space, so he can build more flats above me.
This is obviously a shock to me, as there were no mention from the previous owner or the solicitor regarding the plan whatsoever.
So can I, in principle stop the freeholder from building more flats? What if i refuse to sell him the loft space?
Do I have the right to do so?
