Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Denton from the perspective of expediting the sale process?

  • Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Denton can be avoided where you get in touch lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the purchasers’ conveyancers.
  • You believe that you know the number of years left on your lease but it would be advisable verify this by asking your solicitors. A purchaser's lawyer will not be happy to advise their client to to exchange contracts if the lease term is below 75 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale. If there is a history of conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved prior to the flat being marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where a dispute is unsettled. You may need to swallow your pride and pay 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 will still have to reveal details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to reveal the dispute as historic as opposed to unsettled. If you are supposed to have a share in the Management Company, you should make sure that you are holding the original share document. Obtaining a re-issued share certificate is often a time consuming formality and slows down many a Denton conveyancing deal. If a new share is required, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (where applicable) for this sooner rather than later. Many freeholders or Management Companies in Denton charge for providing management packs for a leasehold property. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the actual amount of the charges. The management information can be applied for on or before finding a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The average time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Denton.
