Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Powys is more expensive?
Powys leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.
I am planning on selling our house in Powys and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Powys lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Powys. We have lived in Powys for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two flats in Powys both have about 50 years remaining on the leases. Will this present a problem?
There are plenty of short leases in Powys. The lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As the lease shortens the saleability of the lease reduces and it becomes more expensive to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is advisable to extend the lease term. Sometimes it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage companies may be reluctant to lend money on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We recommend you seek professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.
