I can not work out if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Caerphilly bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Caerphilly conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they will not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the solicitor is on the bank approved list, they must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
How does conveyancing in Caerphilly differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Caerphilly approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because builders in Caerphilly 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 conveyancers 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 Caerphilly or who has acted in the same development.

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
