Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Rhiwderin from the perspective of saving time on the sale process?
- Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Rhiwderin can be reduced where you appoint lawyers the minute your agents start marketing the property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ conveyancers. If you have had any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved prior to the flat being put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is a current dispute. You will have to accept that you will have to pay 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 ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to reveal the dispute as over as opposed to unresolved. If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s consent? Have you, for example installed wooden flooring? Rhiwderin leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or installing wooden flooring necessitate a licence from the Landlord approving such alterations. If you dont have the paperwork to hand you should not contact the landlord without checking with your solicitor before hand. You believe that you know the number of years remaining on your lease but you should verify this via your lawyers. A buyer’s lawyer will not be happy to advise their client to where the lease term is under 75 years. It is therefore essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should ensure that you hold the original share certificate. Arranging a replacement share certificate is often a lengthy formality and frustrates many a Rhiwderin home move. Where a new share certificate is needed, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if applicable) for this as soon as possible.
