The freehold

Can we buy the building?

With the leasehold deal agreed we make the obligatory enquiry about whether the landlord is willing to sell the freehold. For us this is a common question with all the leasehold interests we take on. However until now the answer has always been "No, don't be stupid" followed by a clip round the ear for being so cheeky.

The pub is managed by a locally based management company & the freeholders are some investment company based in Guernsey. Our contact at the management firm says that he'll ask the question & he even seems a bit optimistic about the answer being positive. We wait to hear.
