Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Surbiton from the perspective of expediting the sale process?
- Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Surbiton can be reduced if you instruct lawyers the minute your agents start advertising the property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ conveyancers. Many landlords or managing agents in Surbiton charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the actual amount of the charges. 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 the most frequent reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Surbiton. Some Surbiton leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, you should notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. Any 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 purchasers or their solicitors. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should make sure that you are holding the original share certificate. Obtaining a duplicate share certificate can be a time consuming formality and slows down many a Surbiton home move. If a duplicate share certificate is needed, do contact the company officers or managing agents (where applicable) for this as soon as possible.
