Should you dont have the paperwork to hand do not contact the landlord without checking with your conveyancer in the first instance.

A buyer’s lawyer will be unlikely to recommend their client to proceed with the purchase of a leasehold property the remaining number of years is below 75 years. It is therefore essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale. Some Aston Clinton leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references.

You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their lawyers.
