How does conveyancing in Bushey differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Bushey come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Bushey tend to acquire the site, 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 Bushey or who has acted in the same development.

I have recently realised that I have Fifty years remaining on my lease in Bushey. I now want to extend my lease but my landlord is missing. What should I do?

If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be lengthened by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have done all that could be expected to track down the lessor. In some cases a specialist would be useful to try and locate and to produce an expert document to be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court overseeing Bushey.

My wife and I have hit a brick wall in seeking a lease extension in Bushey. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

Most certainly. We are happy to put you in touch with a Bushey conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Bushey residence is 197 Byron Road in March 2013. In relation to the value of the extended lease the tribunal concluded that the appropriate premium should be £19237 This case related to 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 70.92 years.

We own a leasehold flat in Bushey. Conveyancing was finished in five years ago. I have been told that I mustn’t let the lease length fall too low. Why is that a problem?

Bushey domestic long term leases are for a fixed term - normally 99 years when they commenced. However a significant appartments in Bushey were built or converted 30 or more years ago and so these leases now have fewer than eighty years left to run. This may sound like a long time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions tend to require leases to have at least seventy five years unexpired to be mortgageable. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are nearing eighty years. To maximise your property value you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. Please note that there are advantages to doing so before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease falls below eighty years the amount you have to pay to extend starts to escalate.
