What makes a Hemsworth lease defective?
Leasehold conveyancing in Hemsworth is not unique. All leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can result in certain sections are not included. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. Repairing obligations to or maintain elements of the premises
A defective lease will likely cause problems when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property.

If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the buyer to pull out.
