Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Linslade from the perspective of expediting the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Linslade can be avoided where you get in touch lawyers as soon as your agents start marketing the property and ask them to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the purchasers’ conveyancers.
  • If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s approval? Have you, for example installed wooden flooring? Linslade leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or addition of wooden flooring require a licence from the Landlord approving such alterations. Where you fail to have the consents to hand you should not communicate with the landlord without checking with your solicitor in the first instance. If you hold a share in a the freehold, you should make sure that you have the original share certificate. Organising a new share certificate can be a lengthy process and frustrates many a Linslade conveyancing transaction. Where a duplicate share is required, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (if applicable) for this at the earliest opportunity. Some Linslade leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this is the case, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain bank and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is able to meet 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 solicitors. If you have had conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved before the property is put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is a current dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and pay any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to completion of the sale. 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 details of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to present the dispute as historic rather than ongoing.

I inherited a basement flat in Linslade, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar flats in Linslade with over 90 years remaining are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2090

With only 68 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
