Sometimes a potential adversary may try and sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way.

Are there frequently found deficiencies that you come across in leases for Forestdale properties?

Leasehold conveyancing in Forestdale is not unique. Most leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can result in certain sections are missing. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts. A provision to repair to or maintain parts of the property

A defective lease can cause problems when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Nationwide Building Society, Virgin Money, and Clydesdale all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.
