Colindale leasehold conveyancing Example Support Desk Enquiries
Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Colindale. Before diving in I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Colindale - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden flat in Colindale.Conveyancing has not commenced but I have just had a yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is clear the service charge as normal because all ground rent and service charges will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
