Hello all, Looking for some advice and guidance please.
I own the leaseholds of two maisonettes (1 up, 1 down) on one end of a block totaling six. There are two other blocks of the same together with some terraced houses that make up the estate. The estate is ex-council now owned & run by a local housing association. Of the remaining four maisonettes, two are occupied by social housing tenants and the other two are also leasehold owners.
Each maisonette has it’s own entrance with exclusive garden. The ground floor maisonettes are accessible from one side of the block, the first floor maisonettes are accessed from the other side.
I would be interested in acquiring the freehold on just the end two that I own (removing from the existing title & creating a new title?). Is this possible?
It would mean splitting the block vertically and in-effect make mine two end-of-terrace maisonettes. There is buildings insurance arranged by the local housing association which is paid for by a service charge – but I presume this would not be much of an issue, if at all.
The freehold title & plan outlines parts of the block and it appears some of the terraced houses on the estate have been removed to form separate new titles. I am happy to post this up if it aids the discussion.
I am happy to seek legal advise based on whether responses here are positive. So please, if there is anyone known to the forum who specialises in this area I’d be very grateful if anyone can pass some contact details on.
