How does conveyancing in Bishopsworth differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Bishopsworth approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Bishopsworth typically 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 Bishopsworth or who has acted in the same development.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Bishopsworth. Before I get started I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Bishopsworth - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
