  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Hoole can be bypassed if you get in touch lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information needed by the buyers’ solicitors.
  • A minority of Hoole leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this applies to your lease, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying the annual 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 actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their lawyers. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should make sure that you are holding the original share document. Obtaining a replacement share certificate is often a time consuming process and frustrates many a Hoole conveyancing deal. If a duplicate share certificate is necessary, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (where relevant) for this as soon as possible. If you have carried out any alterations to the property would they have required Landlord’s permission? Have you, for example installed wooden flooring? Most leases in Hoole state that internal structural alterations or addition of wooden flooring calls for a licence from the Landlord acquiescing to such changes.

A buyer’s conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the lease term is below 75 years.

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