Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Westhoughton is more expensive?
Westhoughton leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.
Please help - my lawyer advises that lack of planning permission insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Westhoughton?

I am the only recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Westhoughton. The Westhoughton property was put into my name in December. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in December. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be affected by that. many banks would take a sensible view as this provision chiefly exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
