I am buying a leasehold property in Beccles - what do I need to know?
Purchasing a leasehold flat in the UK can be complex when compared to purchasing a freehold. The many potential complications lying in wait for an uninformed buyer can include legally technical issues like unreasonable managing agent fees and freeholds sold without first refusal to leaseholders.
A good property lawyer will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.
Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?
Compared to freehold property, yes. The legal work for selling a leasehold house or flat usually takes longer.
The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and a current statement of service charges. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes to gather this paperwork.
It can take a long time to gather these details if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent, so the solicitor should start this process as soon as possible.
