Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good morning thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. It is best practice for the company who has the day to day running of the leasehold properties to complete the LPE1 and 2, as they will be able to provide the required information that the buyer is looking for.
Management companies can charge anywhere between £200 to £400 for completing an LPE1/2 form and providing a management pack (if they do this) the cost of this will be paid for by the seller.
The LPE1 should only be completed within your knowledge, if you are unsure of any of the questions your response should be that you are unsure and/or refer to management company. That way there should be no liability issues once you have completed the LPE1.
It may be that the buyers request that the RTM and the management company complete LPE1's which is sometimes the case and then they collate the infromation together from both parties.
Hopefully, I have answered your question but if anything remains unclear I will be happy to assist you further.
