Explain the key information a buyer of a lease should know
- Describe at a high level the key documents the buyer should receive
- Explain the main risks to the buyer’s enjoyment of their property
- Identify the main financial obligations the buyer is taking on
Knowing about the contents of the revised Residential Leasehold Property Enquiries Questionnaire (LPE1) and the new Buyers Leasehold Information Summary (LPE2) will give you the expertise to explain these to your clients and reduce the potential for misunderstandings.
We will cover the basic definitions and the documents a buyer of a leasehold property can expect to receive to allow you to gain the basic information needed to help your clients understand what they are taking on by becoming a leaseholder.
