I am buying a leasehold property in Carterton - what do I need to know?
Purchasing a leasehold flat in the UK is more complicated than buying a freehold. The numerous common problems lying in wait for the unsuspecting buyer can include legally technical issues like overpriced managing agent packs and excessive freehold premiums.
A specialist leasehold solicitor will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.
Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?
Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold house or flat can take much longer.
The buyer's conveyancer will want to see this leasehold-related paperwork, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time required by your solicitor to get these documents together is commonly the source of delays.
It can take a long time to gather the managing agent's information if it is difficult to contact the managing agent, so your lawyer should commence this at the earliest opportunity.

Do I need a solicitor to transfer equity in my Carterton home?
A 'transfer of equity' will be necessary if the ownership of a residential property needs to be changed with at least one current owner remaining on the title. A transfer will also be required if the property is being gifted to a child or relative. The legal process of transferring equity differs from an outright purchase or sale. Your conveyancing solicitors can carry out the legal work on the transfer for an all-inclusive fixed fee. If you will also be remortgaging, the legal work for the remortgage can be completed at the same time as the transfer.
