Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Morriston costs more?
In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Morriston and Swansea usually necessitates additional due diligence compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes checking the lease terms, liaising with the landlord about serving applicable notices, securing up-to-date service charge and management information, obtaining the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first entered into.
I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for stalling in Morriston house deals. Is that correct?

Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Morriston.

Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
