I am buying a leasehold property in Liphook - what do I need to know?
Purchasing a leasehold property in the UK requires a number of extra steps when compared to buying a freehold. The many potential traps awaiting an uninformed buyer can include legally technical issues like overpriced managing agent packs and marriage value issues.
An experienced leasehold conveyancer will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.
Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?
Compared to freehold property, yes. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats can take much longer.
The buyer's solicitor will need to review these documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Delays are usually the result of the time required by your solicitor to source this information.
It could take several weeks to collect the managing agent's information if it is difficult to contact the managing agent, so the solicitor should get this underway at the earliest opportunity.
