    How to tell if flat is still council owned?

    I'm looking at a flat in a block and have done a trawl of the land registry for it.

    A typical flat in the block has the following information:

    Flat X,
    Tenure: Leasehold    Price Paid/Value Stated Data: No    
    Tenure: Freehold    Price Paid/Value Stated Data: No    
    (1) See important note

    Whereas I think the following may indicate council/housing trust ownership in the same block?

    Flat X1,

    Tenure: n/a    
    Price Paid/Value Stated Data: n/a    No information available

    >>>
    I've compared this against a freehold house I know is council owned but other than no price held data there are no other clues.

    Are my thoughts on the flat X and X1 correct?

    Thanks.

    Maybe. You can pay for the actual land registry reports and see who is listed as the owner.
    Alternatively - you could ask the Freeholder. As the % of council-owned makes it hard to get a mortgage. So perhaps the Council can furnish you with more information.
