Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Mile End with the intention of speeding up the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Mile End can be bypassed where you instruct lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ lawyers.
  • Some Mile End 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. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are financially capable of paying the yearly 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 purchasers or their solicitors. The majority of freeholders or managing agents in Mile End charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should discover the actual amount of the charges. The management information can be applied for 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 usual cause of frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Mile End. If there is a history of any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved prior to the flat being put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is a current dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to present the dispute as historic as opposed to unsettled. You may think that you are aware of the number of years left on your lease but it would be advisable double-check via your solicitors. A buyer’s conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the remaining number of years is below 75 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an as soon as possible that you identify whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale.

After months of negotiations we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Mile End. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

Where there is a absentee freeholder or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to calculate the premium.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Mile End property is 26 Rhondda Grove in June 2009. The net price payable by the leaseholders as determined by the Tribunal was £3,015.13. This comprised £11,300 premium for the reversion less £8,284.87 costs as ordered by the County Court.

Two months into purchasing a residence in Mile End. Conveyancing solicitor has phoned to say the title is "Leasehold". Will this likely impact the marketability of the house?

Mile End conveyancing does not in most situations involve leasehold houses. The main consideration here is the unexpired lease term and the ground rent. If there are hundred of years years remaining with a peppercorn rent, it's essentially freehold, so it’s unlikely to impact the value too much.

At the other end of the spectrum, if it's, say, Sixty years it will have a material effect on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be acceptable to the mortgage company. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be specified in the lease provided to your conveyancing practitioner.
