Should I be wary of buying a leasehold house?

Should I buy a property with a short lease?

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold home can result in long delays.

The buyer's conveyancer must review these documents, like management company information and three years' filed accounts for the property management. Delays are usually the result of the time needed by to source this information.

It can take weeks to collect the managing agent's information if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord, so your conveyancing solicitor should commence this even before you have found a buyer.

Can Quittance help with the conveyancing for a transfer of equity on my Clitheroe property?

A 'transfer of equity' will be required if the ownership structure of the Clitheroe property needs to be changed, but at least one of the current owners will remain on the title, or 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 solicitor can carry out the legal process for you for a guaranteed fixed fee. If you will also be remortgaging, this can be completed at the same time as the transfer.
