Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Markyate from the point of view of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Markyate can be bypassed if you instruct lawyers as soon as your agents start advertising the property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ lawyers.
  • The majority of landlords or Management Companies in Markyate levy fees for supplying management packs for a leasehold premises. You or your lawyers should discover the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most common cause of frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Markyate. A minority of Markyate leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are 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 lawyers. If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you have the original share document. Obtaining a re-issued share certificate is often a lengthy formality and frustrates many a Markyate home move. If a duplicate share certificate is needed, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s approval? Have you, for example installed wooden flooring? Markyate leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or laying down wooden flooring calls for a licence from the Landlord approving such works. If you dont have the consents to hand you should not communicate with the landlord without contacting your conveyancer in the first instance.

I acquired a leasehold flat in Markyate, conveyancing formalities finalised September 2012. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent properties in Markyate with a long lease are worth £265,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease expires on 21st October 2097

With just 76 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
