Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Shirebrook?

Conveyancing for a leasehold flat (leasehold houses are rare) is a great deal more specialised than for a more straightforward freehold house.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Shirebrook must undertake additional legal work, such as sourcing the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to a copy of the service charge budget for the current year (and any anticipated payments on account).

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold house or flat, It is strongly advised that you instruct a Shirebrook conveyancing solicitor as soon as is practicable.
