About to purchase a new build flat in Choppington. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Choppington

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Choppington ahead of appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor has said that some banks may not give a mortgage on such a premises.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Choppington.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent advised that the vendor will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's recommended lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Choppington

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Choppington conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will provide their estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets set by HQ.

What is the reason for my conveyancer requiring a list of items of ID ahead of starting selling or purchasing a property in Choppington?

Choppington conveyancing practitioners are duty bound by the Law Society, SRA, HMLR and current Money Laundering legislation to record that the have verified the identity of their clients. It will also be a requirement of your lender where you are obtaining a mortgage. In addition they have to complete various forms, particularly those relating to Land Tax and need to have information such as your full names, national insurance number and DOB.
