Default Pre-Assignment pack - whats this?

I'm chasing my solicitor and EA to try and find out what's happening with regard to my house - how frustrating!!!! My solicitor NEVER takes my calls - I always get put thro to voicemail!!

I've just heard from the EA saying the solicitor is waiting for a pre-assignment pack from the local council!

Can anyone tell me what his is as when I googled it it said its provided to leaseholders when selling their property - my property is a house and Freehold! :confused:

Any ideas anyone please?

is the freehold house an ex council property?

a preassignment pack is yes, a pack determining the lease, age of property , any lease issues, including ground rent.

the council will also include the lease variance ( i think thats what its called) which says that the council is of the understanding that the property is being sold to you
Well aint funny how its the little things in life that mean the most? Not where you live, the car you drive or the price tag on your clothes.
Theres no dollar sign on piece of mind

Hi lynzpower - no the house is not an ex council - how strange!! The only thing is we pay a ground rent of 1 which I believe is to the management company for the park area behind us and the upkeep of it and the trees in the road?? I'm confused!

THE ONLY THING I can think of is

a)that the EA has got it wrong, that they have confused you with someone else
b) that your sol has made a grave co-ck up - so stop them, Preassignment packs usually cost 175 upwards, and thats a cost ( and delay) you might have to bear.

I have known of preassignemnet packs taking up to 10 weeks, so call your sol pronto and get them to stop it right now if thats what they have started!!!
