I hired a Beckton based firm for our conveyancing in Beckton yesterday. Reviewing the Terms and Conditions it is apparent thatwe are liable for costs even if the movedoes not happen.

It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Beckton conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers.

How does conveyancing in Beckton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Beckton contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Beckton 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 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 Beckton or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Beckton I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Beckton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of apartments in Beckton both have approximately fifty years unexpired on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As the lease gets shorter the value of the lease deteriorates and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is often a good idea to extend the lease term. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We advise that you seek professional assistance from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this field.
