Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Colliers Wood. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Colliers Wood - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
