    I understand LR are working very very slowly at the moment. We have been waiting what feels like several months for our freehold enfranchisement to be registered.

    I would put it to vote at the AGM. But one argumant against is they must have known the restriction before buying.

    That's a good question!

    Perhaps the freeholder has to honour the lease and provide a replacement dwelling for the remainder or the lease term? Sort of the opposite of a leasehold property...
