How does conveyancing in Aberbargoed differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Aberbargoed come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Aberbargoed typically purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Aberbargoed or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Aberbargoed is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Aberbargoed are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Aberbargoed you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Aberbargoed may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
