Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Kirkby In Furness with the purpose of speeding up the sale process?
- A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Kirkby In Furness can be bypassed if you appoint lawyers the minute your agents start marketing the property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information needed by the buyers’ solicitors. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? Have you, for example laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Kirkby In Furness state that internal structural alterations or addition of wooden flooring necessitate a licence issued by the Landlord approving such works. If you dont have the consents in place do not communicate with the landlord without contacting your lawyer first. You may think that you are aware of the number of years left on your lease but you should verify this by asking your lawyers. A purchaser's conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to where the lease term is less than 75 years. It is therefore important at an early stage that you identify whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale. If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should ensure that you are holding the original share certificate. Arranging a re-issued share certificate can be a time consuming formality and slows down many a Kirkby In Furness conveyancing deal. Where a reissued share is required, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (where applicable) for this at the earliest opportunity. If you have had conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved prior to the flat being put on the market. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where a dispute is ongoing. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. 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 details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as over as opposed to unresolved.
