    The landlord cannot sell the FH on better terms or a lower price than offered in the original notice within 12 months.

    That is part of the reason for the S3a advising the LH of their rights.

    1)Yes to both points.

    2) Probably not, but it depends what the leases say.

    3) Yes, but you cannot grant it to yourself, the FH will need to be in different names to the lease or held in a...

    frag,

    There is no specific time limit to serve the section 3a notice. Once served the leaseholders have 4 months to respond.

    No it doesn't. It is a statutory notice that has to be served advising the leaseholders of their rights in relation to the sale of the freehold.

    Highly unlikely, there may be specialist lenders that will, but normally properties with leases below 70 years are only attractive to cash buyers hence the lower prices.

    Possible, but most lenders will only lend on leases over 70 years and until the extension is agreed they won't be lending on long enough lease.



    Yes you only qualify for a statutory lease...

    If you live in the property and it is a property converted into flats, not a purpose built block then it is exempt from R2FR.

    That may alter things, according to the lease guide if 50% of the building is non-residential then R2FR doesn't apply. You exclude any common parts in that calculation.

    You didn't mention any commercial property before, If more than 50% of the property is non-residential then R2FR doesn't exist any way.

    If the FH does not serve notice and give you and the other LH R2FR then yes he is committing a criminal offence. How and who will enforce this I don't know though.

    That is incorrect.

    We have established it is a HMO. A section 257 HMO because it does not meet the appropriate building regs, and any dwelling with more than two unrelated households is a HMO.
