A friend recommended that where I am purchasing in Burscough I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?
This is a search is usually quoted for as part of the standard Burscough conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing important information about Burscough around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Burscough Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Burscough Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding Burscough.
four months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Burscough concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
How does conveyancing in Burscough differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Burscough come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Burscough 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 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 Burscough or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Burscough I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Burscough suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
I am in the process of buying my first property in Burscough. Conveyancing solicitor has been instructed. The mortgage adviser pointed out that a survey is not necessary as the property was only constructed in 2001.
You would be best advised to undertake a Home Buyer's Report. As the residence is more than ten years old the property will be without a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report could suffice. They will highlight any obvious issues and recommend additional investigation if relevant. Where there are any indications of problems seek a full structural survey.
