Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Caerleon from the point of view of saving time on the sale process?
- A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Caerleon can be bypassed if you appoint lawyers as soon as your agents start advertising the property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ solicitors. Many freeholders or Management Companies in Caerleon charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold premises. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the actual amount of the charges. The management pack can be applied for as soon as you have a buyer, thus reducing delays. The typical amount of time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Caerleon. If there is a history of any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be concerned about purchasing a flat where a dispute is unsettled. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as historic as opposed to unsettled. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the Management Company, you should ensure that you have the original share document. Organising a duplicate share certificate can be a lengthy process and frustrates many a Caerleon conveyancing transaction. If a reissued share is required, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (if applicable) for this as soon as possible.
