I am buying a leasehold property in Hornsea - what do I need to know?
Purchasing a leasehold flat in the UK is significantly more complex than buying a freehold property. The many potential complications lying in wait for the unsuspecting buyer can include legally technical issues like sinking fund issues and marriage value issues.
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. Sale conveyancing for leasehold houses or flats can result in long delays.
The buyer's solicitor will want 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 required by your lawyer to gather this paperwork is commonly the source of delays.
It can take a long time to gather this information if it is difficult to contact the managing agent, so the seller's solicitor should start this process before a buyer has even been found.
