We think it is essential you select a competent Licensed Conveyancer that carries loads of experience in completing Lease Sales. An experienced Conveyancer will know each different type of issues that can come up Lease Contracts, like:
1. the conveyancer is required to confirm the length of time that is left on the lease contract as most mortgage lenders won’t provide a mortgage for a lease that has under 60 years left to run.
2. your leasehold conveyancer or solicitor is required to check out the specific terms, conditions and requirement written in the lease contract which may hinder the use, enjoyment and futuredevelopment of the leasehold property.
Also remember that the legal cost for a leasehold property usually is more expensive than a normal freehold property (for more info see: leasehold conveyancing).
