In England and Wales apartments are invariably sold under long contractual documents - known as leases.
These documents are long and complex, and require detailed negotiation and advice.
Whether you are buying for your own occupation, or as an investment, we will carefully examine the apartment owner’s financial liabilities to contribute to service charges, by obtaining details of service charge history and where possible the landlord’s estimates of future expenditure.
Apartment tenants also need appropriate rights over other parts of the building, whether for access, for parking or for storage of refuse, and the benefit of proper obligations on the part of others to repair the remainder of the building. We examine these in detail.
When acting for sellers, we anticipate the buyers’ enquiries and obtain as much information on their behalf as we possibly can at an early stage, to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays.
