Title restriction - HELP!

I bought a house in 2019 (freehold) as a new build property from a developer. The developer set up a management company to look after the common areas. In 2020, without our knowledge, he dissolved the company. He has put a restriction on our title so that we cannot sell without it being approved by the management company , which obviously no longer exists. Land registry have refused to remove the restriction, but have agreed to disapply it. Our current buyers lender isn’t happy with this so we are stuck. The developer is ignoring all correspondence. What options have we got?

    What does your solicitor say? Any chance of providing the LR with prove that the company has been dissolved?
    Have you checked Companies House if the management co. was a limited company? That would confirm its status if so.
