- Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Cherry Burton can be avoided where you instruct 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 purchasers’ lawyers. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the Management Company, you should ensure that you have the original share document. Arranging a new share certificate is often a lengthy formality and frustrates many a Cherry Burton conveyancing deal. Where a new share is needed, do contact the company officers or managing agents (if applicable) for this as soon as possible. If you have carried out any alterations to the property would they have required Landlord’s permission? In particular have you installed wooden flooring? Cherry Burton leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or installing wooden flooring require a licence issued by the Landlord consenting to such changes. Should you dont have the consents in place do not communicate with the landlord without checking with your conveyancer in the first instance. If you have had conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved before the property is put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be nervous about purchasing a property where there is a current dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and 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 prior to 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 clearly preferable to present the dispute as historic rather than unsettled.
