  • If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you hold the original share certificate. Obtaining a new share certificate can be a lengthy formality and delays many a Holly Village home move. If a duplicate share is required, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (if relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity. If you have had any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved prior to the flat being put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where there is an ongoing dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve 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 will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is clearly preferable to reveal the dispute as over as opposed to ongoing.

The management pack sought on or before finding a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The average time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks.

It is therefore important at an as soon as possible that you identify whether the lease term requires a lease extension.
