I am buying a leasehold property in Stowmarket - what do I need to know?
Purchasing a leasehold property in the UK is more complicated than buying a freehold. The many potential problems lying in wait for the unsuspecting purchaser can include legally technical issues like undisclosed major works and short leases.
A good property lawyer will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.
Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?
Correct, it can take considerably longer to conduct the conveyancing to sell a leasehold house or flat, compared to freehold conveyancing.
The buyer's solicitor will need to review these documents, such as a current statement of service charges. The time needed by your solicitor to get these documents together is usually the cause of these delays.
Your conveyancing solicitor should commence this even before you have found a buyer, because this information can take weeks to collect if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.
