  • Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Earl Shilton can be avoided where you instruct lawyers the minute your agents start advertising the property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ representatives.
  • If there is a history of any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be concerned about purchasing a flat where a dispute is unresolved. You will have to accept that you will have to 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 will still have to reveal details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as historic rather than unresolved. If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s approval? In particular have you installed wooden flooring?

If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale.
