I am buying a leasehold property in Chorleywood - what do I need to know?
Purchasing a leasehold flat in the UK can be very involved. The many potential traps awaiting an uninformed buyer can include legally technical issues like overpriced managing agent packs and unreasonable lease extension premiums.
Your solicitor will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.
Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?
Yes. The legal work for selling leasehold properties 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 it takes to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.
It can take a long time to gather this paperwork if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond, so your lawyer should get this underway even before you have found a buyer.
