    WitneyApartments was launched in 2012 following the resounding success of OxfordApartments.

    The recent construction of some 150 additional apartments in Witney has created an ideal opportunity to expand this business into this affluent West Oxfordshire town. This increase in supply has led to an increase in demand from buy-to-let investors, first time buyers, downsizers and 'empty nesters'. This demand can be stifled by the changing economic situation driving apartment sales into a specialist market. We are proud to be the agent with a proven track record specialising in this sector.

    Working closely alongside Breckon & Breckon, WitneyApartments are the only agent to specialise in the sale of leasehold properties in West Oxfordshire.

    Because we only deal with apartments we have a large database of potential buyers and all of the relevant experience to get the job done. Please call us to arrange your free valuation and find out more about our unrivalled service

    Selling a leasehold apartment is often more complex than selling a freehold house. More forms, more paper work, more potential pitfalls. 
    At WitneyApartments we aim to iron out as many of the creases as possible before they present themselves as issues. Not only do we try to make things as smooth as they can be, but most importantly our goal is to get the best possible price for you! And being Witney's only apartment sales specialist also has some major benefits!

    Speed Up The Sale of Your Leasehold Property...

    Being prepared with the Information that your Conveyancer Will Need. When selling a Leasehold Property, there is a lot of information about the leasehold property that your buyer's solicitor will require from the landlord. The biggest delay in selling a Leasehold property is obtaining this information. A certain amount of the information about the leasehold property must come directly from the landlord, however there is a lot of information you may gather for your leasehold property in readiness. Landlords and/or their Managing Agents will invariably make a charge for providing the information about the leasehold property. The amount that Landlords and Managing Agents charge for this information varies and can be as much as £300.00. The Landlord/Managing Agent will not provide the information regarding the leasehold property until they have been paid. So it is important to find out from the Landlord/Managing Agent from the outset what they are going to charge and make sure that they are paid at the earliest opportunity to gain the information about the leasehold property as soon as possible. 
    It is important that you appoint Conveyancers who are experienced in Leasehold properties as soon as you put your property on market and make sure that they start obtaining the necessary information about your leasehold property from your Landlord/Managing Agent as soon as you have a purchaser. 
    Although it is not strictly necessary to appoint a firm with experience in leasehold conveyancing, it is a considerable advantage to do so as they will be familiar with the local Landlords/Managing Agents.
    Information that will be required about the leasehold property from the Landlord:  
    • Up to date Buildings Insurance 
    •  Last three years' Service Charge Accounts 
    • Estimate of Next Year Service Charge Account 
    • Up to Date Service Charge statement (and receipt) for your leasehold Property. 
    • Copy of any Notices Served (for example, in relation to upcoming major works; any proposed sale of the building; any notices that the management of the building or the estate is about to change). 
    • Asbestos Survey (if building has been built before 1999)  
    • Fire Risk Assessment 
    • Whether or not there has been any disputes regarding the Service Charge 
    • Whether there are any substantial works of maintenance anticipated within the next three years. 
    • Copies of any recent regulations imposed. 
    • Management Company - Memorandum and Articles of Association and minutes of the last AGM together with a copy of any share certificate that you may have. 
    • Consent from the landlord for any alterations you may have made to the leasehold property. 
    • Consent (if required by the Lease) of the Landlord to the Sale of the Leasehold Property.

    Some useful info...
    image cannot be displayed

    Leasehold means that you own the property for as long as is specified in the lease; you are granted the right to live there by the freeholder. At the end of the lease the property again becomes the possession of the freeholder. Many leases are originally granted for up to 999 years, but existing leases on properties are usually shorter. The majority of leasehold properties are flats, although some houses are leasehold. The lease stipulates who is responsible for maintaining and repairing different parts of the property and any conditions you must meet as a resident. Check these if you are considering buying a leasehold. You must also pay a ground rent to the owner of the land (the freeholder), usually a small amount paid each year. Your solicitor should check that the seller is up to date with ground rent payments before you sign the contract. You should not buy a property with a lease of less than 60 years, and anyway mortgage lenders are very unlikely to lend for a lease as a short as this. Lenders normally want at least 20 years left on the lease after the end of the mortgage term. As a leaseholder you have the right to extend the lease for 90 years or even to buy the freehold if certain criteria are met, though the application process is expensive and takes a long time. Contact the Leasehold Enfranchisement Advisory Service for more information.
