I am buying a leasehold property in Warwickshire - what do I need to know?
Buying a leasehold flat in the UK can be complicated. The many potential traps awaiting the unsuspecting buyer can include legally technical issues like unreasonable managing agent fees and excessive freehold premiums.
Your solicitor will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.
Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?
Correct, it can take considerably longer to carry out the conveyancing on leasehold properties, compared to freehold conveyancing.
The solicitor acting for the buyer will want to see this leasehold-related paperwork, like management company information and details of any breaches by other leaseholders. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes to get these documents together.
It can take weeks to collect the managing agent's information if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so your lawyer should get this underway even before you have found a buyer.
