- A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Crayford can be avoided where you appoint lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold information needed by the buyers’ conveyancers. The majority of landlords or Management Companies in Crayford charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold property. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the actual amount of the charges. The management pack sought on or before finding a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The average time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Crayford. A minority of Crayford leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this is the case, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand 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 actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors. If you have carried out any alterations to the property would they have required Landlord’s permission? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring?

Should you fail to have the approvals to hand do not contact the landlord without contacting your lawyer in the first instance. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be advisable verify this via your solicitors. A buyer’s conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to proceed with the purchase of a leasehold property the remaining number of years is below 80 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.
