  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Claverdon can be reduced where you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the purchasers’ solicitors.
  • If there is a history of conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved before the property is marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where there is a current dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale.

You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to present the dispute as over as opposed to unsettled.

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 solicitors.
