If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. You will be obliged to prove that you have done all that could be expected to track down the lessor. For most situations a specialist may be useful to carry out a search and to produce an expert document which can be used as proof that the freeholder is indeed missing.
