• Selling Share Of Freehold Flat

    By Guest on 20th Oct 2014

    Hello, I am currently selling my first floor maisonette which has the share of the freehold with the ground floor one. My downstairs neighbours though are refusing to sign any LPE1 form or provode any info we require to answer some of our buyers' solicitor's queries unless they instruct their own solicitor which they want us to pay for. I am expecting them to also be required to countersign our Share of Freehold Interest Transfer form soon, but right now they refuse to even just request a solicitor's quote unless our solicitor provides a detailed list of all the papers they are required to sign in order for us to complete on our sale.
    They are being very defensive and unreasonable and causing delays to the whole conveyancing.
    Can they do that? And are we really liable to cover their solicitor's fee if they demand legal assistance to sign the papers we need to sell, but ultimately fulfilling their obligations as set out on the Lease?

    Please could you kind help us understand asap before we fork out extra money we might not need to spend?
    I look forward to your reply.

    Thank you and kind regards,

    Thank you for your question.

    I'm afraid they are within their rights to insist in being represented and to expect you to pay.

    Best regards
