How does conveyancing in Bishopsworth differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bishopsworth come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Bishopsworth 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Bishopsworth or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Bishopsworth is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Bishopsworth are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bishopsworth you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bishopsworth may determine 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 premises.

Am I better off to use a Bishopsworth conveyancing solicitor based in the area that I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can execute the legal formalities but her office is 400miles away.

The benefit of a high street Bishopsworth conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to execute documents, hand in your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and they were content that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Bishopsworth conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.

As a tenant I am on the hook for a service charge for my ground floor flat in Bishopsworth. Due to losing my job and other issues I fell into arrears with remittance. I negotiated a settlement schedule but there remains two currently due.

I now wish to dispose of the property and I am concerned this can hold me back if I have to discharge the amount due in advance. I'd like to sell up and subsequently pay them back with the proceeds - is this viable?

You should clarify with the property lawyer dealing with your Bishopsworth conveyancing but it may be possible to agree for the debt to be transferred to the buyers. The contractual price due would be adjusted to reflect the amount of debt they take on. They would then pay the outstanding monies post completion of the sale.
