Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Badsey from the perspective of saving time on the sale process?
- Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Badsey can be bypassed if you instruct lawyers the minute your agents start marketing the property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the purchasers’ conveyancers. If you have had conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are settled before the property is marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where there is an ongoing dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to 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 reveal the dispute as over rather than unresolved. If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s consent? In particular have you installed wooden flooring? Most leases in Badsey state that internal structural alterations or installing wooden flooring necessitate a licence from the Landlord acquiescing to such changes. Where you dont have the paperwork in place do not contact the landlord without checking with your conveyancer first. Some Badsey leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. 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 bank and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is able to meet 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 solicitors. If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you have the original share document. Arranging a replacement share certificate can be a lengthy process and frustrates many a Badsey conveyancing transaction. If a new share is needed, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (where applicable) for this as soon as possible.
