I am buying a leasehold property in Verwood - what do I need to know?
Purchasing a leasehold house or flat can be complex when compared to purchasing a freehold. The many potential complications lying in wait for an uninformed purchaser can include legally technical issues like costly and undisclosed major works and freeholds sold without first refusal to leaseholders.
A specialist leasehold solicitor will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.
Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?
Yes, that's correct, it can take considerably longer to carry out the legal work to sell leasehold properties when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.
The buyer's conveyancer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include details of any breaches by other leaseholders and a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time needed by the seller's conveyancer to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.
The seller's solicitor should start this process before a buyer has even been found, because this information can take a long time to gather if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property or they are slow to respond.
Will I need a conveyancing solicitor if I am remortgaging my Verwood property?
