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.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Bishopsworth prior to appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor has said that some banks will refuse to grant a mortgage on such a premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions for example to Nationwide. Should you wish to telephone us we can check via the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Bishopsworth. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Bishopsworth especially if they are acquainted with such properties in Bishopsworth.

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.

Bishopsworth Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Queries Prior to Purchasing

    Where a Bishopsworth lease has no more than 80 years it will affect the value of the apartment. Check with your bank that they are willing to go ahead with the loan given the lease term. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably have to extend the lease at some point and it is worth finding out how much this would cost. Remember, in most cases you will need to own the residence for two years before you are legally able to extend the lease. How many years remain on the lease? Best to be warned if window replacement or some other significant cost is pending that will be shared amongst the leaseholders and may well dramatically increase the the maintenance costs or require a specific invoice.
