How does conveyancing in Chase Side differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Chase Side contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Chase Side usually 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 Chase Side or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Chase Side I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Chase Side suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months 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 speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

Do I need to be wary about 3rd parties that I am dealing with are suggesting a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a local Chase Side conveyancing firm?

As with many professional services, often referrals from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are numerous players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies may suggest conveyancers to select. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to select your own lawyer. Don't forget that some banks operate an approved list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your house move.

No doubt it’s preferable to find a conveyancing lawyer is to have referrals from friends or family who have used the firm you're considering.

Last May I purchased a leasehold property in Chase Side. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I am the proprietor of a second floor flat in Chase Side. Given that I can not reach agreement with the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the amount payable for the purchase of the freehold?

Where there is a missing freeholder or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to make a decision on the price payable.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Chase Side flat is 23 Beaconsfield Road in July 2013. The Tribunals decided that the amount payable was £31,203 for the freehold. This case affected 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 70.31 years.
