I am buying a leasehold property in Eccles - what do I need to know?

Buying a leasehold property in the UK is significantly more complex than buying a freehold property. The many potential complications awaiting the unsuspecting buyer can include legally technical issues like unreasonable managing agent fees and onerous clauses in the lease.

Your conveyancing solicitor will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. Sale conveyancing for leasehold houses or flats typically takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see several leasehold-related documents, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and a current statement of service charges. The time needed by your solicitor to get these documents together is the common cause of such delays.

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