How does conveyancing in Barton Upon Humber differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Barton Upon Humber approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Barton Upon Humber tend to purchase the land, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Barton Upon Humber or who has acted in the same development.

I have just started marketing my 2 bed flat in Barton Upon Humber.Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon but I have recently received a yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the maintenance contribution as normal given that all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be apportionedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
