- Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Holly Village can be avoided where you get in touch lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ solicitors. If you have had any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are settled prior to the flat being put on the market. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where a dispute is unresolved. You will have to accept that you will have to pay any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to present the dispute as historic rather than unresolved. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s approval? Have you, for example laid down wooden flooring? Holly Village leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or installing wooden flooring necessitate a licence from the Landlord approving such works. Should you fail to have the paperwork in place you should not communicate with the landlord without checking with your lawyer first.

It is the most frequent reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Holly Village.
