  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Fetcham can be avoided where you instruct lawyers the minute your agents start marketing the property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information needed by the buyers’ solicitors.
  • Some Fetcham leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this is the case, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand bank and professional references. Any bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are able to meet the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their lawyers. The majority of landlords or Management Companies in Fetcham levy fees for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should discover the actual amount of the charges. The management pack sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The average time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Fetcham. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? Have you, for example installed wooden flooring? Most leases in Fetcham state that internal structural changes or installing wooden flooring necessitate a licence issued by the Landlord approving such changes. Should you fail to have the approvals to hand you should not contact the landlord without checking with your conveyancer in advance.
