How does conveyancing in Blakeney differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Blakeney come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because new home sellers in Blakeney usually 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Blakeney or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Blakeney I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Blakeney in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

I want to sublet my leasehold flat in Blakeney. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Do I need to ask my freeholder for their consent?

Some leases for properties in Blakeney do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
