- A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Penrith can be avoided if you get in touch lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ conveyancers. A minority of Penrith leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this is the case, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain bank and professional references. The bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying 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. Many landlords or managing agents in Penrith levy fees for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should find out the actual amount of the charges. The management pack can be applied for as soon as you have a buyer, thus reducing delays. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most common reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Penrith. If you hold a share in a the freehold, you should ensure that you hold the original share certificate. Organising a new share certificate can be a lengthy formality and slows down many a Penrith home move.
