A leasehold house or flat is where the purchaser buys the right to occupy a house or flat for a selected length of time. Leasehold owners might be subject to some specific terms and conditions contained in the Lease Contract. The period of time purchased by the leasehold property is limited to up to 999 years.
We think it is very important that you use a knowledgeable Conveyancer that has loads of experience in managing Lease Conveyancing. A knowledgeable Conveyancing Solcitior knows all the types of issues that might arise Leasehold Properties, for example:
1. the conveyancer is required to confirm the length of time still left on the lease contract because the majority of mortgage providers do not provide a mortgage for a lease that has less than 60 years left to run.
2. your leasehold conveyancer will need to check the small terms, conditions and requirement in the lease agreement that might effect the use, enjoyment and futuredevelopment of the property.
Bare in mind that legal fees on a leasehold property can be more expensive than a standard sale (for more info see: leasehold conveyancing).
Conveyancers come with Indemnity insurance during conveyancing transactions to protect against any kind of legal defect with the property that can’t be resolved quickly, or can’t be fixed at all. Conveyancing indemnity insurance covers the purchaser and the mortgage lender in case of any decrease in value on the property as a result of any defect or problems. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ (CML) handbook for conveyancers says: “You must effect an indemnity insurance policy whenever the Lenders’ Handbook identifies that this is an acceptable or required course to us to ensure that the property has a good and marketable title at completion.”
