Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Bedwas from the perspective of expediting the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Bedwas can be bypassed if you instruct lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information needed by the purchasers’ solicitors.
  • If you are supposed to have a share in the Management Company, you should ensure that you are holding the original share certificate. Organising a duplicate share certificate is often a lengthy formality and frustrates many a Bedwas home move. If a new share certificate is needed, do contact the company officers or managing agents (where relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity. You believe that you know the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be wise to verify this by asking your solicitors. A purchaser's lawyer will not be happy to advise their client to proceed with the purchase of a leasehold property the remaining number of years is under 75 years. It is therefore essential at an as soon as possible that you consider whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale. A minority of Bedwas leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this applies to your lease, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are 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 solicitors. If you have carried out any alterations to the residence would they have required Landlord’s approval? In particular have you installed wooden flooring? Most leases in Bedwas state that internal structural changes or laying down wooden flooring necessitate a licence issued by the Landlord approving such works. If you dont have the approvals to hand you should not contact the landlord without checking with your solicitor first.
