Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Chalfont St Peter with the aim of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Chalfont St Peter can be bypassed where you get in touch lawyers as soon as your agents start advertising the property and ask them to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ solicitors.
  • You believe that you know the number of years left on your lease but it would be advisable verify this via your solicitors. A purchaser's conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to where the lease term is less than 80 years. It is therefore essential at an as soon as possible that you consider whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale. Some Chalfont St Peter leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this applies to your lease, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is able to meet 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 service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s approval? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Chalfont St Peter state that internal structural changes or laying down wooden flooring calls for a licence issued by the Landlord approving such works. Where you dont have the paperwork in place do not contact the landlord without checking with your solicitor in the first instance. If you have had conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is put on the market. The buyers and their solicitors will be warry about purchasing a property where there is a current dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and pay any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as historic as opposed to ongoing.
