How can I buy the freehold of the building in which I’m purchasing a flat?
When you buy a leasehold flat (usually for a lease lasting a long time), it means that you don’t own the building or the land on which it is built. If you want to buy the freehold of the building (either yourself or with other flat-owners), you’ll need to meet a few legal criteria before that can happen (such as the number of flats, the purpose to which the majority of the building is put to, and the number of flat-owners willing to by the freehold).
One additional point to note is that the shorter the lease on any flat, the greater the price of the freehold is likely to be.
You should talk to other residents about your plan as well as finding out how much the freehold will be and getting a professional valuation. Once you are in a position to move ahead, you’ll need to appoint a solicitor to manage the legal aspect of the planned purchase.

The property solicitor could advise that a chancel search be ordered, whichever parish where the building being bought is found.
