Existing leaseholders, what help do we get for the unsellable house or flat?

Brilliant news for all new homeowners, but what about those that are existing, trapped in homes that we cannot sell. I have managed to buy my home 100% but they will not release the lease, one letter saying you have 112 years left, then another comment stating virtual freehold, yet the house less than 500 yards is freehold, owned by the same housing association is freehold?
I have tried for years to sell, begging them to consider my home becoming freehold. But ignored as those it does not matter, service charge increased for what? I get offers and buyers but they always pull out! Never given the chance to move on with life. Stuck in an unsellable house!
