How does conveyancing in Carisbrooke differ for newly converted properties?

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

I own a leasehold flat in Carisbrooke. Conveyancing and Lloyds TSB Bank mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1995. The conveyancing practitioner in Carisbrooke who previously acted has long since retired. Any advice?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that this person is indeed the new freeholder. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Carisbrooke conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

Carisbrooke Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Sample of Queries Prior to buying

    Who is in charge of the block? Most Carisbrooke leasehold properties will be liable to pay a service charge for the upkeep of the block levied on behalf of the management company. If you purchase the property you will have to meet this liability, normally quarterly during the year. This could differ from two or three hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for large purpose-built blocks. In all probability there will be a ground rent to be met annual, normally this is not a significant figure, say around £50-£100 but you need to enquire it because occasionally it can be surprisingly expensive. This question is important as a) areas may result in problems in the block as the common areas may start to deteriorate if services remain unpaid b) if the leasehold owners have a dispute with the running of the building you will want to have all the details

My husband and I have AIP from Skipton Building Society who indicated we could borrow up to £218k. At what point do we need to instruct a practitioner for conveyancing? Carisbrooke is where we are purchasing.

It would be wise to appoint a lawyer now and ask them to open a file on your behalf. This will kickstart: 1) the estate agent to send out the Sales Memorandum to all parties 2) the seller’s lawyer to send out the draft contract. That being said, do not ask your solicitor to order searches until you have your valuation report from Skipton Building Society and you are willing to proceed.
