I am buying a leasehold property in Cromer - what do I need to know?
Purchasing a leasehold flat in the UK can be complicated. The numerous common problems lying in wait for the unsuspecting buyer can include legally technical issues like unpaid service charges by the existing leaseholder and excessive freehold premiums.
A good property lawyer will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.
Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?
Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The legal work for selling a leasehold property usually takes longer.
The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, like management company information and three years' filed accounts for the property management. Delays are usually caused by the time needed by the solicitor to gather this paperwork.
It can take weeks to collect this information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property or they are slow to respond, so your conveyancing solicitor should get this underway at the earliest opportunity.
