How does conveyancing in Aberystwyth differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Aberystwyth contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Aberystwyth usually buy the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Aberystwyth or who has acted in the same development.

Corresponding properties in Aberystwyth with a long lease are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2102
With just 80 years left to run the likely cost is going to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as legals.
