What you need to know...
The sale or remortgage of a leasehold property will need our response to a number of questions relating to the lease or transfer of covenants and other management information.
If you’re a leaseholder and selling your home, you or your solicitor may be asked to obtain pre-assignment information from us. This is a standard pack of details about your property, including any planned major works.
The pre-assignment information for leasehold properties includes:
- 3 year service charge history
- current service charge account balance and statement (including ground rent)
- date and length of the lease
- lease provisions regarding the payment of service charges
- block description and number of properties in the block that have been sold
- details of section 146 notices served on the property for non-payment of the service charge and any additional courts fees and interest payable
- breaches of lease
- details of any lease breaches committed
- list of section 20 notices served on the address
- planned major works for the block and/or estate
- if the property is part of a Tenants and Residents Association (TRA) with contact details if applicable
- confirmation as to whether the property is managed by a management company
- landlord’s name and address
- notice fee.
The pre-assignment information doesn't include:
- a fire risk assessment for the building
- information on asbestos
- building insurance information
You will need to request these separately.
If you’re a solicitor and your client is buying a Lambeth leasehold property, then please ask the seller’s solicitor to request the pre-assignment pack as some information is covered under data protection.
