Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Ingatestone from the point of view of saving time on the sale process?

  • Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Ingatestone can be reduced where you instruct lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold documentation which will be required by the buyers’ representatives.
  • If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should make sure that you are holding the original share document. Obtaining a new share certificate can be a time consuming formality and slows down many a Ingatestone conveyancing deal. If a duplicate share certificate is required, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this sooner rather than later. If there is a history of any disputes with your landlord 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 there is a current dispute. You will have to accept that you will have to discharge 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 ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as over rather than unresolved. A minority of Ingatestone leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers obtain 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 purchasers or their lawyers. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Ingatestone leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or installing wooden flooring calls for a licence from the Landlord approving such works. If you dont have the consents in place do not communicate with the landlord without checking with your solicitor in the first instance.
