I am buying a leasehold property in Dereham - what do I need to know?
Selling a leasehold propertyrequires a number of extra steps when compared to buying a freehold. The many potential traps lying in wait for an uninformed purchaser can include legally technical issues like unpaid service charges by the existing leaseholder and unfair clauses in the lease.
Your solicitor will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.
Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?
Correct, it can take much more time to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold property when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.
The buyer's solicitor will want to see several leasehold-related documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information.
It could take several 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 the seller's solicitor should get this underway even before you have found a buyer.

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.
