Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Whaley Bridge with the purpose of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Whaley Bridge can be reduced if you appoint lawyers the minute your agents start advertising the property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information needed by the buyers’ lawyers.
  • A minority of Whaley Bridge leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this applies to your lease, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is 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 lawyers. If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should make sure that you hold the original share document. Obtaining a replacement share certificate is often a time consuming formality and frustrates many a Whaley Bridge home move. If a new share certificate is required, do contact the company officers or managing agents (if applicable) for this sooner rather than later. If you have had any disputes with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You will have to accept that you will have to pay 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 ahead of 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 clearly preferable to present the dispute as historic rather than unresolved. If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s approval? Have you, for example laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Whaley Bridge state that internal structural changes or addition of wooden flooring require a licence from the Landlord acquiescing to such works. Where you fail to have the consents to hand you should not contact the landlord without checking with your solicitor in advance.

Whaley Bridge Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - A selection of Questions you should consider Prior to Purchasing

    How much is the service charge and ground rent on the apartment? If a Whaley Bridge lease has less than 80 years it will impact the value of the flat. Check with your bank that they are willing to lend given the lease term. A short lease means that you will probably need a lease extension sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this will be. Remember, in most cases you will need to own the property for two years in order to be entitled to extend the lease. Is anyone aware of any major works on the horizon that will increase the service charges?
