If you have carried out any alterations to the residence would they have required Landlord’s approval? In particular have you installed wooden flooring?

Should you dont have the approvals to hand do not contact the landlord without checking with your conveyancer in advance. A minority of Pentwyn leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this applies to your lease, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are financially capable of paying the yearly 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.

Obtaining a new share certificate is often a time consuming formality and slows down many a Pentwyn conveyancing deal. Where a duplicate share is necessary, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (where relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity.
