  • Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Waltham can be bypassed if you instruct lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold information needed by the purchasers’ lawyers.
  • If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should make sure that you are holding the original share document. Obtaining a re-issued share certificate can be a time consuming formality and delays many a Waltham conveyancing transaction. If a new share certificate is necessary, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (if applicable) for this as soon as possible. You believe that you know the number of years left 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 where the lease term is below 75 years. It is therefore essential at an early stage that you consider whether the lease for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale. A minority of Waltham leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is able to meet the annual 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 service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their lawyers. 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? Waltham leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or laying down wooden flooring necessitate a licence from the Landlord acquiescing to such changes. Where you fail to have the consents to hand you should not contact the landlord without contacting your solicitor in the first instance.
