Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Tiptree with the purpose of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Tiptree can be bypassed where you instruct lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation which will be required by the purchasers’ conveyancers.
  • If you have the benefit of shareholding in the Management Company, you should make sure that you hold the original share certificate. Organising a duplicate share certificate can be a lengthy formality and frustrates many a Tiptree home move. If a duplicate share is required, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (if relevant) for this as soon as possible. You believe that you know the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be wise to double-check by asking your lawyers. A buyer’s conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to proceed with the purchase of a leasehold property the remaining number of years is less than 80 years. In the circumstances it is essential 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. A minority of Tiptree leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand bank and professional references. The bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is 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 buyers or their lawyers. Many landlords or managing agents in Tiptree levy fees for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should discover the fee that they propose to charge. 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 common cause of frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Tiptree.
