  • Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Llanrumney can be bypassed where you get in touch lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ conveyancers.
  • If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should make sure that you have the original share certificate. Obtaining a re-issued share certificate is often a time consuming formality and frustrates many a Llanrumney conveyancing deal. If a reissued share is required, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (where applicable) for this as soon as possible. If there is a history of conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be concerned about purchasing a flat where there is a current dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve 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 will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to present the dispute as over rather than unsettled. If you have carried out any alterations to the property would they have required Landlord’s consent? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring?

Should you dont have the paperwork to hand you should not communicate with the landlord without checking with your solicitor first. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be wise to double-check via your conveyancers. A buyer’s lawyer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the remaining number of years is below 80 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an as soon as possible that you identify whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale.
