Leasehold property purchase time to be improved

Leasehold property purchase time to be improved

As of tomorrow a new process will come into effect when a leasehold property is purchased. The new process could see up to 10 days being shaved off the transcation time. The new process involves a standardised questionnaire that property owners and their estate agents can fill out. 


By providing a standard questionnaire it will allow property owners and agents to provide relevant information that meets the requirements of both the buyers and sellers conveyancers. This will also help reduce the cost of each transaction as further information that is not part of the questionnaire will only be required should an issue arise.
