Find UK People® are a U.K. leading freeholder tracing company who have significantly invested in its absentee freeholder tracing service.

Our industry leading freeholder tracing service is finding most of missing freeholders within just 7 days. This service will locate an absentee freeholders current address.

The issue of freeholder tracing and an absent freeholder can arise most often where houses have been converted into flats. With conversions such as these, the freeholder would have historically sold off the flats on very long leases, thereby, capitalizing on the value of his / her interest. Whilst remaining technically as a freeholder, the freehold value is minimal when compared to the long leasehold interests sold off.

In such scenarios, the freeholder may lose interest or even forget about owning the freehold, he/she might have moved to a new address or even deceased. These situations can continue for many years, especially because many of the flat-owning leaseholders may not see it as a major issue. They don’t tend to pay service charges and may even be ignorant that the freeholder will typically have the role of arranging buildings insurance for the overall building and then seeking reimbursement from the leaseholders.

Some leaseholders may also, in some ways, see the lack of involvement of the freeholder as advantageous in that they may be tempted to make changes to the flat which would require freeholder consent without worrying about it, on the basis that a lack of a freeholder reduces the risk of action being taken for breach of lease covenant. Unfortunately, this approach can prove to be short-sighted.

In instances where a freeholder is absent or unreachable, the ultimate remedy often involves legal proceedings. Specifically, leaseholders can apply for a Vesting Order in the County Court, which can result in the transfer of the freehold to the leaseholder. However, before making such an application, leaseholders are required to demonstrate that they have made sufficient efforts to locate the absentee freeholder. This can include engaging the services of a specialist freeholder tracing agency, which can provide expert assistance in locating the absentee freeholder.
