I am the sole beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Buntingford. The Buntingford property was put into my name in March.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Buntingford from the perspective of speeding up the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Buntingford can be bypassed where you instruct lawyers as soon as your agents start marketing the property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the purchasers’ solicitors.
  • A minority of Buntingford leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this applies to your lease, you should notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand bank and professional references. Any bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are financially capable of paying the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their solicitors. If there is a history of conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is very important that these are settled before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as over rather than unresolved. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should make sure that you hold the original share document. Arranging a new share certificate can be a lengthy process and slows down many a Buntingford conveyancing transaction. Where a new share certificate is needed, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity.
