I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and have to vacate my rented property in Caergwrle by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. Can I complete in six weeks as I wish to avoid having to find temporary accommodation?

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Caergwrle with the aim of speeding up the sale process?
- Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Caergwrle can be reduced where you get in touch lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold information needed by the purchasers’ solicitors. Some Caergwrle leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this applies to your lease, you should notify your estate agents 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 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 service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their lawyers. If you have carried out any alterations to the property would they have required Landlord’s approval? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Caergwrle state that internal structural changes or installing wooden flooring require a licence issued by the Landlord acquiescing to such alterations. Should you fail to have the paperwork in place you should not communicate with the landlord without checking with your conveyancer before hand. Many landlords or managing agents in Caergwrle levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the actual amount of the charges. The management pack sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Caergwrle. If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should ensure that you are holding the original share document. Organising a duplicate share certificate is often a time consuming formality and delays many a Caergwrle conveyancing transaction. If a new share certificate is required, do contact the company officers or managing agents (if relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity.
